Overview

Overview

Latin Philology deals with Latin texts from antiquity to the beginning of the Middle Ages. The focus is on general and Latin literature, especially the literary texts that founded European literature and European science. The students gain insights into Roman culture, history and intellectual history as well as their aftermath in Europe. Neighboring disciplines such as Ancient History and Greek Philology are integrated into the course.

The acquisition of basic knowledge in the field of Greek language and literature, the exemplary treatment of the contexts of Latin literature as well as the after-effects of ancient Latin literature in Latin literature of the Middle Ages and the early modern period are also part of the course.

The students acquire methodological skills in dealing with language and literature, with which they examine the language system and language history as well as texts of the most important literary genres. Active language and translation skills play a central role in the course. The students get an overview of the conditions of origin, prerequisites and after-effects of ancient Latin literature by studying classical Latin poetry on the basis of important authors as well as its reception in later epochs.

Career Prospects

Bachelor graduates have scientific knowledge and practical skills that qualify them for a job or a postgraduate course.

Graduates of Latin Philology can work in research and teaching at universities in any humanities related to European culture. There are career opportunities with publishers, media, libraries, museums or cultural institutions that deal with the conveyance or presentation of content from Roman antiquity or the art and science landscape that was shaped by the Latin language into the 18th century.

Since not all graduates find a place on the narrow, specialist job market, the acquisition of additional qualifications, as they are already imparted in the General Vocational Preparation (ABV) study area, as well as early orientation with regard to employment opportunities and the personal application strategy are of great importance for a successful career start.

A master’s degree and, if applicable, a doctorate are prerequisites for management positions or employment in research and teaching.
