About this course

At B.A. level, Egyptology can be studied as a 1st or 2nd main subject accounting for 50% of the study workload. It has to be combined with another joint subject accounting for the other 50% of the study workload.

The difference between a first and second main subject is that students choosing Egyptology as their first main subject are required to complete a written B.A. thesis alongside their oral examination, whereas students opting for Egyptology as a second main subject are only required to take the final oral examination.

The B.A. course in Egyptology as a (first or second) main subject provides students with the linguistic and subject-related knowledge and skills required for an understanding of ancient Egyptian script, language and culture. This competence is imparted to them by means of Introductory, Basic and In-Depth modules.
