The bachelor's degree in Classical Studies offers a broad basic education in the five disciplines of Egyptology, Ancient Near Eastern Studies, Classical Archeology, Prehistoric Archeology and Near Eastern Archeology. Linking the courses offered in the participating subjects in the integrative area of ??the Bachelor's degree promotes interdisciplinarity, which is important in research and teaching as well as in professional practice outside the university.

The Classical Archeology profile area is dedicated to the legacies of Greek and Roman culture from around 1500 BC. BC to 500 AD in the Mediterranean area, as well as the artefacts of adjacent settlement areas that were related to these cultures. There are close connections to Classical Philology (Latin and Greek Studies), Ancient History (including epigraphy, papyrology and numismatics), Prehistory and Early History, Egyptology, Near Eastern Archeology as well as the history of ancient religions and art history. Fundamental knowledge of monuments, archaeological finds and findings as well as methods and issues of classical archeology, including image-scientific methods (iconographic analysis, iconological interpretation, Style analysis) as well as methods of architectural history and field research. The aim of the study is to reconstruct the evidence of the material culture of antiquity as the result of concrete historical and cultural processes and to understand classical antiquity as a cultural-historical phenomenon also in its transformation into neighboring cultures and into post-antiquity and thus as part of modern culture.

Program Structure

The mono bachelor's degree includes the integrative area, which is independent of the selected profile area, the profile area, related areas and the general vocational preparation study area.

At the end of the course, the exemplary deepening and differentiation of a selected field of study takes place through the independent scientific development of a self-selected problem (Bachelor thesis).

Modules in the related areas expand the specialist spectrum. In addition to the modules of the chosen profile area, the modules of the affine areas should provide the students with an expanded but self-contained qualification profile. The modules of the related areas and the services provided in them must not correspond to the modules and services of the integrative area and the studied profile area. The modules that can be selected must be coordinated with the specialist representatives or the examination offices.

The general vocational preparation study area (ABV) includes an internship and the following areas of competence: foreign languages, information and media competence, gender & diversity competence, organizational and management competence, personal and socio-communicative competence and subject-related additional qualifications in which additional practical professional knowledge and skills are imparted will. The objectives, content and structure of the general vocational preparation study area are regulated in separate ABV study and examination regulations.

Career Prospects

Bachelor graduates have scientific knowledge and practical skills that qualify them for a job or a postgraduate course. Classical scholars mainly work in research and teaching at universities. Depending on the area of ??application, they carry out assessing, evaluating and creative activities on the basis of archaeological and cultural-historical content. In addition, there are career prospects in areas such as monument preservation, museums and research institutions (in some cases only with a master’s degree and / or doctorate) and in unspecific professional fields such as adult education, journalism, tourism, culture and science management, media design or publishing.

Since not all graduates find a place on the narrow, specialist job market, the acquisition of additional qualifications, as they are already taught in the general vocational preparation course, as well as early orientation with regard to further employment opportunities and the personal application strategy are of great importance Significance 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.
