- The basic requirement for studying at a university is the so-called university entrance qualification, e.g. the Abitur. This qualification can be obtained in different ways and enables its holder to study either at a university or at a Fachhochschule (university of applied sciences). The entitlements listed below are those valid in Lower Saxony.
Preliminary examination of the university entrance qualification (HZB)
Prospective students who would like to have their university entrance entitlement (HZB) examined prior to applying for enrolment (i.e. university entrance qualifications on the grounds of vocational education and training, entrance qualifications for universities of applied sciences, EU university entrance qualifications acquired outside Germany) can submit their university entrance qualification documents to the University’s Registrar’s Office from the middle of May
The programme Ancient Cultures is offered in Göttingen as a single subject Bachelor programme. Contrary to the double subject B.A., a second subject is not selected here.
At least one focus of study must be selected during the programme. Possible study foci are:
Ancient Oriental Studies, Egyptology, Coptology, Prehistory and Early History, Ancient History, Classical Archaeology, Greek Studies, Latin Studies, Late Antique or Christian Orient.
It is strongly suggested to select the subject focus before beginning studies, since most of the orientation modules of the individual subjects are only offered every second semester.
In addition, students must take at least one module in each of the following subjects: Cultural History, Archaeology, History and Literature/Philology. Students must also complete an area of professionalization in which subject-specific knowledge and languages as well as key competencies such as IT are given and expanded.
The Bachelor thesis is part of the programme and a component of the Bachelor examination in addition to the module examinations.
