About this course

Assyriology can be studied as a main (major), as a joint, or as a subsidiary (minor) subject. The course revolves around the acquisition of ancient Near Eastern languages (Akkadian, Sumerian and an introduction to Hittite for main-course students, Akkadian for subsidiary students) and cuneiform script. At the same time, students are expected to acquire a basic knowledge of other sectors of the subject (history, religion, science and society in the ancient Near East).
