MA students should ask one of the staff members from the department of Classics as a supervisor for their MA thesis. A second supervisor – the second reader – will be indicated in consultation with the student. All theses are based on a substantial amount of primary texts in Greek or Latin relevant to the line of investigation, which is either of a linguistic or literary nature, or of a cultural-historical nature; in the case of the latter, one of the two supervisors should be from a language section and one from the cultural-historical disciplines. In these cases, the thesis plan must be approved by both first and second reader before the start of the writing process.
The thesis for the Classics Master’s programme contains a maximum of 17,000 words including notes, bibliography and appendices. More information about regulations regarding the MA thesis
