'During your studies, you will learn to work with both textual and material sources. This makes the programme really versatile. The world of Antiquity, including the Middle East, is studied as a whole, which means you will see that areas around the Mediterranean Sea and in West Asia already influenced each other at this point in time.
I am learning Akkadian (the language of ancient Iraq) and I study cuneiform tablets, but I also tag along on archaeological fieldwork campaigns and attend archaeological-historical seminars on Greece. For me, personally, what makes this programme so amazing is the fact that you are able to do so many different things and that this gives you such a comprehensive image of Antiquity.'
