Uncover the ancient world

After graduating with a Master’s degree in Classics and Ancient Civilizations, you will be well prepared for positions requiring in-depth knowledge of this field, or other jobs requiring a range of academic skills.

If you plan to continue your career in education, you will be well equipped to follow an Educational Master’s programme specialising in Greek and Latin. Taught in Dutch, this programme will allow you to become a fully qualified secondary school teacher in the Netherlands. If you decide to pursue an academic career, it’s a good idea to discuss the possibility of switching to a two-year Research Master's programme.

What can you do after your Master's degree?

Enter the workforce

A Master’s degree in Classics and Ancient Civilizations gives you three main options.

Start working
You can start working, using your in-depth knowledge and academic skills, in areas like arts management, commercial research, or the broader cultural sector – including museums, archives, journalism, publishing and cultural tourism.

Deepen your academic knowledge

Follow an Educational Master
Or you can follow an Educational Master’s programme and become a fully qualified secondary school teacher in the Netherlands. With the Classics specialisation, you can follow VU Amsterdam’s one-year Dutch Educational Master’s (Leraar VHO in de Taal- en Cultuurwetenschappen), specialising in Greek and Latin. 

Join one of the Research Master’s programmes within ACASA 

If you perform well during the regular Master’s programme and wish to pursue a PhD candidacy at VU Amsterdam or the UvA, or at another university in the Netherlands or abroad, continuing your studies in one of the two-year selective Research Master’s programmes within ACASA – Classics and Ancient Studies: Research at VU or Archaeology at UvA – may be an option.
