Programme Structure

Common Courses:

  • With all other Classics and Ancient Civilizations specialisations, the ResMA Assyriology shares two compulsory Common Courses. These courses are geared towards connecting the various disciplines and cross-fertilising work in your own specialisation. 
  • Students of all specialisations  examine cultural phenomena that transcend their own discipline and engage in discussions with fellows from neighbouring fields. 
  • Since classes in the research master level always follow recent trends in research, specific topics presented in the Common Courses may change every year.
