Overview

Like Greek studies, Latin studies are part of Classical Philology. Her objects include the language, literature and culture of Latin antiquity as well as their effects beyond antiquity.The focus of the Latin studies course is on expanding language skills and acquiring basic knowledge in Latin literary and cultural studies. As part of the language specialization, the students deal intensively with grammar, expand their Latin vocabulary and improve their translation skills. The literary studies study deals with different Latin texts from poetry and prose. The students acquire skills in the formal and content-related analysis of these texts and receive in-depth knowledge of individual genres, epochs and authors. The training is supplemented by content from cultural studies and its related disciplines, such as ancient history, archeology, philosophy, religious studies, Reception or art history. An integrated internship or project also provides insights into everyday work and / or research. In addition, additional courses in the study of Latin Studies as a first subject enable an individual profile and focus to be developed.Overall, the bachelor's degree in the two subjects of Classical Philology is structured in a similar way. While Latin Studies can be studied as both a first and a second subject as part of the two-bachelor's degree, Greek studies are only offered as a second subject. Because their respective languages ??and literatures belong to a common Hellenistic-Roman culture, a combination of both subjects makes sense. The subject of Latin studies can also be combined with another subject of one's own choice, such as modern philology, history or philosophy.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

If you are enthusiastic about the Latin language and literature as well as the history and culture of antiquity, you have the best prerequisites for studying Latin studies. In addition, you should not be averse to an intensive reading study and be prepared to get involved with the world of thought conveyed in it - a world that has decisively shaped our present, but which is still far back.For a successful degree it is important that you already have basic language skills equivalent to the Latinum. Therefore, the admission requirement for the Bachelor's degree in Latin Studies is the passing of a language proficiency test or proof of equivalent language skills. If you do not have the necessary language skills, you can acquire them in a one-year orientation phase at the University of Potsdam.

CAREER PROSPECTS

With a degree in Latin Studies, you will acquire a sound basic knowledge of the structures and history of the Latin language and the cultures it dominates. After completing your studies, you will be able to analyze forms of literary communication in Latin in terms of language and describe them in their respective genre-specific, historical and cultural context. In addition, you will be able to appreciate Latin sources as the basic texts of European intellectual history.This opens up professional perspectives for you in the publishing industry, in museums and broadcasting companies, in cultural and scientific journalism, in adult education, in the tourism industry, in the media sector or in cultural work. Furthermore, the bachelor's degree represents the first step towards an academic career
