Ancient Egypt is perhaps the world’s best-known example of a complex society in the past. The area is studied with a focus on the roles played by gods and humans, accessible through texts, art and archaeology during more than three millennia. Through the programme, you will learn how to combine different types of sources, methods and perspectives to better understand the lives of people in one of the earliest literate cultures known to mankind.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
Studies in the humanities entail using complex and varied sources to better understand humans. The specialisation Egyptology in the Master’s Programme in the Humanities is the programme for those interested in combining texts, art and material remains in the exploration of Ancient Egypt. You will learn how a scholar works by studying a fascinating set of sources, and become an expert in identifying problems and suggest possible solutions from a fragmentary record by analysing and combining different types of evidence. As part of the programme, language and text studies are combined with history, art and archaeology.
The programme entails a solid foundation for PhD studies in Egyptology at various universities in the world, but also prepares you for a career that involves aspects of cultural heritage management or administrative roles. The courses normally consists of seminars that sharpen your abilities in oral presentations and communication. Academic writing is trained continuously, preparing you for a range of situations where complex problems are analysed.
The programme leads to a Master of Arts (120 credits) with Egyptology as the main field of study. It is also possible to graduate after one academic year with a Master of Arts (60 credits).
