  • Master's Programme "Ancient Cultures of the Eastern Mediterranean" (AKOEM)

    Since 2007 the "Centre for Eastern Mediterranean History and Culture" (GKM) offers the Master's Programme "Ancient Cultures of the Eastern Mediterranean".

    The research oriented Master’s programme is aimed at students interested in the languages and texts, the history and politics, the cultures and religions, and the material and conceptional remains of the Eastern Mediterranean and who thus deliberately select this interdisciplinary degree programme.

    The students acquire a comprehensive image of the ancient Eastern Mediterranean and of the neighbouring areas, which is guided by current research questions. Particular objectives within this qualification are advanced expertise in and a firm methodological grasp of the disciplines relevant to the interpretation of ancient records. In addition, analytical, presentation, and interactive skills are developed at an advanced academic level.

    Furthermore, the degree programme is aimed at distinct intercultural competence and a solid command of at least one of the ancient languages. Graduates are thus capable of understanding and analysing even complex and sophisticated texts in the ancient language(s) they have chosen.

    An orientation in the vocational field takes place during the course of studies by means of various optional elements. These include internships at research institutions at the university and outside of it and at cultural education institutions, as well as active participation in academic conferences and workshops and through research trips to the Eastern Mediterranean.
