Latin Bachelor’s programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The bachelor’s programme Latin deals with the entire written heritage of Roman Antiquity from its beginnings to Late Antiquity. The subject also covers Latin texts from the Middle Ages, from the Renaissance and from modern times. This bachelor’s programme provides thorough knowledge and an in-depth understanding of Latin language structures. Students concentrate on many different texts, which they translate and analyse with the aid of relevant secondary literature. This course provides basic education which deals with important authors who have inspired the European history of culture and ideas. Besides dealing with the Greek language and its texts, students also focus on the communication of art, cultural-historical knowledge and basic historical knowledge about Antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Due to its role as a mediating language for Greek scriptures, Latin literature has shaped the European history of ideas right up to the present day. For this reason the course deals with basic questions of European philosophy, society and human existence. Moreover, subject-specific knowledge and academic writing skills are acquired during the course (source and literature research, independent reception of subject-specific literature and the correct use of specialist terminology, etc.).

Expected results

Undergraduates of the bachelor’s programme Latin will be able to build on their subject-specific skills using a high level of self-initiative. They will be able to independently translate, analyse and comment on Latin texts. In addition to subject-specific skills, students will have acquired soft skills, such as the ability to work in a target-oriented and reflective manner, the ability to work in a team, intellectual flexibility and the ability to quickly grasp complex connections. Due to their knowledge, they will have a differentiated understanding of non-domestic civilisations resulting in openness and tolerance.
