The Master's programme Ancient Studies is embedded in a long tradition of teaching and researching Greek and Roman Antiquity, as well as the wider cultural heritage of ancient societies.
The programme is designed as a multi-disciplinary programme, because hardly a single question on ancient culture or society can be solved if you limit the evidence to either written sources or archaeological material. Therefore, you will be combining historical, literary, and archaeological approaches.
This Master’s degree 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 Studies 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.
