Uncover the ancient world

Do you want to become an expert in the literature and linguistics of classical languages or in the cultures and religions of Ancient Greece, Rome or the Near East? Then the Master's in Classics and Ancient Civilizations – with its two distinct specialisations – may be the programme for you.

Gain an in-depth understanding of ancient cultures
This Master’s is offered jointly by the University of Amsterdam and VU Amsterdam – combining their expertise in Archaeology, Ancient History and Classics in the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). This merging of specialisations encourages collaboration and extends the options for the supervision of your Master’s thesis. Not only is the teaching strongly related to the research expertise of the staff, but you’ll also be a partner in research during your studies.
