The one-year master's program in Classical Archeology at the Institute of Archaeological Sciences of the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main is followed by a four-year bachelor program. The degree program includes five modules that serve as professional scientists for training as a professional scientist.
The courses and performance requirements aim at the extension of subject-specific knowledge and methodology as well as the practice of good scientific practice, the main focus is on the ability to autonomous and self-responsible work: On the one hand, the students are motivated and instructed, expert observations and considerations to document archaeological objects and convey them to a smaller public. At the same time, the leap from the material level to the complex ancient world of life and the mind should become a natural and strictly reflected exercise for them.
On the other hand, students will be able to move from the learner's side to the teacher's side by teaching in a seminar together with a lecturer. It also enhances the ability to tap into written sources on ancient cultures, including through the acquisition of the Graecum or an equivalent language test in ancient Greek.
Graduates of the degree program have the opportunity to do their PhD in classical archeology.
