University rank #347 (QS) ,
The European Master in Classical Cultures at the University of Münster (EMCC) is an internationally integrated, interdisciplinary programme in Classical Studies, supported by 12 partner universities from 10 European countries.


The unique profile of the Master in Classical Cultures at the University of Münster is marked by both its specific international and interdisciplinary design and its aim to promote academic excellence.The core modules comprise three main subjects: Ancient History, Classical Philology and Archaeology. The obligation of each student to study at no less than two universities teaching in different languages forms the basis of this international programme. Each of the universities at which a part of the credits necessary for a successful completion of the programme has been validated will award a Masters degree (double or multiple).

The participation of a great number of universities here offers a wide range of sub-disciplines in the field of Classical Studies providing both a high degree of combination options and a European context. This European context forms an important part of the programme, which seeks to define the aspect of a European identity from its classical roots.The diversity of the participating partner universities here provides a great opportunity to refine and extend the programme of study through restructured, complex studies and joint activities. Moreover, the diversity of languages, which characterises Greco-Roman antiquity as much as modern Europe, is emphasised. To enhance country-specific knowledge, excursions to or inspections of important European historical sites are to be integrated into the study plan.
