Egyptology comprises classical and ancient studies. Teaching and research are concerned with languages and history, society, economics, religion, study of monuments, archaeology and literature of the Egypt of the Pharaohs from 5th - 1st millennium B.C., sometimes including its Graeco-Roman and Christian epochs up to the Arabian conquest in 641 A.D. The study programme comprises the field of language (Ancient, Middle and New Egyptian, Demotic, Coptic) and the field of culture (history, religion, study of monuments and archaeology, literature, economics and administration). Since the public museum and the university institute are at one location, the study of Egyptology in Leipzig is very closely associated with the museum and also oriented in some areas to specific museological aspects.
