Knowledge of one or more of the languages of the period is one of the building blocks of the study of Late Antiquity. Learning a language is not obligatory for students in the BA programme, but many students find language study an exciting and rewarding experience.

For many postgraduate students language study adds value to their learning and research. For PhD research the knowledge of at least one language related to the study of Late Antiquity is essential.

The languages included are taught by members of the Centre for Late Antique Religion and Culture in the regular programmes of the School of Religious and Theological Studies and the School of History and Archaeology. They can be studied on their own or in connection with discursive modules by students on all levels.
