There are three different programmes for those interested in Classics; the courses presented on this page are common to all three programmes:
- the one-year general MA-track, covered on this page
- the two-year Research Master CMEMS, with the option to specialize in Classics (here), for students wishing to pursue an academic career
- the two-year Educational Master, for students wishing to become a teacher in Classics (here); this MA combines the programme covered here with the one-year Teacher Education programme. This Dutch programme is only open to students with sufficient Dutch language skills (NT2, programme II).
In the one-year Master’s track, students acquire the knowledge and skills required of a professional classicist. The programme in Groningen is known for its integration of classical languages and ancient cultural history. Students learn how to apply modern scholarly theories to ancient literary and material sources; they also hone their skills in the fields of philology, textual criticism and intertextuality by writing an academic commentary on a classical text. This master’s track offers flexibility in choosing between a more linguistic or a more cultural-historical approach; it is also possible to study epigraphy at another faculty within the Masterlanguage programme, or to include a work placement in the programme.
Our alumni are skilled writers and have eye for detail but also for the bigger picture, which makes them sought-after employees in many fields, including (but not limited to) education, publishing, the cultural sector, journalism and the government.
NB The language of instruction is English; Dutch students (excepting those following the Research Master) are allowed, however, to write their papers and thesis in Dutch, since many will pursue a career in the Netherlands.
This Master's degree is offered on a full-time and on a part-time basis. The part-time programme is the same as the full-time programme, but spread over a longer period. Please contact the study advisor (email@example.com) for more information.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt
Following this one-year also does not exclude the option of becoming a teacher of Classics in secondary school; you can obtain a qualification by following the one-year postmaster LHVO at the college of education (NB this postmaster requires a minimum level of proficiency in Dutch: NT2 programme II).
The skill set of a classicist is highly valued elsewhere, too. Typically, our graduates have a keen sense of language, good writing skills, a critical and analytical mind; having been trained to overview an ancient society in its many aspects, you will be able to reflect on culture and society. You can therefore also work in journalism, the cultural sector, publishing or the civil service. Other examples can be found on the website of the study association of Classics in Groningen, Boreas (in Dutch).
