Description

Philology is concerned with interpreting texts and portraying the intellectual development and essence of a culture on the basis of its language and literature. Together, Greek and Latin philology constitute Classical Philology. The programme aims to present the whole of Greek and Roman intellectual life, from the beginning of written records to the end of antiquity, its reception in the Middle Ages and in the literatures of the modern age. In Greek in particular, a programme focus is on continuity in the development of language and literature, extending from antiquity through the Byzantine era to the modern age, The bachelor programme in Graeco-Latin Philology begins with a comprehensive module on method and language (together with acquisition of any language skills of which students do not yet have a command). Then the programme is divided into two series of consecutive modules in Greek and Latin prose and poetry. However, the close interweaving of the Greek and Roman intellectual worlds always remains a central focus. In the second half of the study programme, students can specialise in either Greek or Latin in selected modules., Knowledge of at least two modern languages (English, French, Italian, Modern Greek) must be acquired or extended for the study of secondary literature. Participation in an excursion to museums, monuments or excavation sites is recommended.
