Major subject in combination Bachelor's degree course - only possible in combination with one or two minor subjects Standard period of study: 6 or 8 semesters (depending on combination) Further information on the structure of the combination Bachelor's degree course can be found here: In the major subject "Ancient Greek Language and Literature" you will learn content-related and methodological skills in the field of ancient Greek literature and its reception in the Middle Ages and modern era. In addition, you will acquire and strengthen your language skills. With these skills, you can work academically in the field of Greek Studies, familiarise yourself with philological issues and analyse these critically and systematically. In particular, the course will train your language skills (insight into the systematics of the Greek language or of inflectional languages in general, translation skills), your historical competence (ability to place texts in a historical and literary context), as well as your cultural competence (ability to name and convey reception references to ancient texts and concepts). In Marburg, the research focus of Classical Philology is on the central texts of antiquity, on which science, literature and philosophy are based in various cultural traditions. In addition to the historical contextualization of these texts, you will analyse the influence of these texts in modern cultures. An integral part of the degree course is the MarSkills programme, in which you acquire attractive and future-oriented key skills (see ).
