The M.A. course in Ancient History sets out to deepen and extend the knowledge of Greek and Roman antiquity acquired in the B.A. course. Intensification of the interdisciplinary aspects of Ancient History is assured by the participation of other departments in the programme: Papyrology, Prehistory and Protohistory, Classical Archaeology, Byzantine Archaeology and Art History and Classical Studies. Another focal concern of the course is to underline the importance of various auxiliary subjects in any engagement with Greek and Roman antiquity. These include epigraphy, numismatics, papyrology and historical geography.

The M.A. course in Ancient History can also be studied as a subsidiary (minor) subject accounting for 20 CP.
