Course detail

This MA programme is unique in the Netherlands in the breadth of its subject matter, the historical periods covered and the multidisciplinary approach of its study. From the beginning of history in Egypt and Mesopotamia up to the Medieval texts in Neo-Latin, Coptic or Hebrew. Characteristic for the MA is its focus on reading ancient texts in their original languages, and discussing the different interpretations that the texts allow.

The Leiden programme distinguishes itself from other similar master’s programmes by offering expertise in the world of the Hebrew Bible, ancient Judaism, emerging Christianity, ancient Mesopotamia, Anatolia, Egypt (ancient, antique and late-antique) and Greco-Roman Antiquity, all seen from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Format

The programme introduces a wide variety of research methods, all of them well-represented in the research carried out at Leiden University. The combined study of sources of different nature is a particularly exiting research approach, because it may lead to new interpretations of the past. Traditional philology with its intimate knowledge of languages and texts, while still indispensable, is enriched by social history and economic theory, comparative literature, the study of religion in an anthropological perspective and, of course, archaeology and material culture.

Specialisations

- Assyriology
- Classics
- Egyptology
- Hebrew and Aramaic Studies

Careers

You have a wealth of other options besides teaching. The study programme will enable you to use your knowledge of classical antiquity to examine or explain texts and cultural phenomena from both antiquity and later periods. Graduates use their specialist knowledge within museums, libraries, antiquarian bookshops, publishing houses, or booksellers. Other graduates start their career at cultural or governmental organisations or enter into business.
