This programme is offered by two universities. The University of Amsterdam and VU Amsterdam have combined their expertise on the field of ancient history and archaeology in the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (ACASA). This merging of specialists from various academic disciplines creates a stimulating environment for collaboration and study.
Ancient History is an accredited degree programme of Classics and Ancient Civilizations. After successful completion of this programme, you will receive a legally accredited Master’s degree in Classics and Ancient Civilizations and the title Master of Arts (MA).
Once you enrol at the UvA, you will also automatically be enrolled as a guest student at VU Amsterdam. If you enrol at VU Amsterdam, the exact opposite applies. Please note that you will receive one diploma from the university at which you originally enrolled.
'The UvA Master's in Ancient History was one of the most challenging, eye-opening and beautiful experiences of my life. I learned more than I thought was possible in a year and I developed intellectually as well as personally. What really made this programme unique, however, was the teachers: we were taught by some of the leading professors in the field and they gave us all the supervision we needed to grow academically.'
