Latin Master's programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

In the master’s programme Latin, students’ knowledge and skills are enhanced, deepened and specialised. Besides continuously dealing with original Latin texts, the reception of writings in other literatures and in art is taught. In addition, methodological tools for dealing with the history of reception are provided. Latin studies are closely related to the science of Antiquity, literary studies, philosophy and religious studies. Due to these ties, students have to learn to work interdisciplinarily, methodically and accurately when dealing with scientific questions. Students are in a position to independently translate Latin texts at a high academic level, to analyse and comment on them, interpreting them while considering the socio-cultural context. During their studies, students acquire soft skills for their careers. These include: the ability to work in an independent and target-orientated manner, the ability to grasp complex historical and socio-cultural connections as well as communication skills and cultural competences.  Last but not least this course prepares students for their profession. Graduates of the Latin master’s programme are highly qualified to publish, translate, comment on and interpret material.

Expected results

Graduates of the master’s programme Latin will have acquired a high level of specialist skills. They will be able to independently expand their knowledge in specific scientific areas as well as continuously enhance their linguistic skills and maintain them in a way that reflects recent research. Moreover, they will be able to use their knowledge and soft skills in a flexible way and to adapt themselves to the requirements of various professional sectors.
