The master's degree course consists of two specialities within the study of Classics: Languages and Philosophy. These share a compulsory module in theory and a compulsory practical module, and each speciality also has its own compulsory and optional modules in theory (with some cross-over in the case of certain subjects). As thematically self-contained units, these modules provide a set framework for both those subjects providing basic training and for more specific subjects. The course also offers less qualified students the opportunity to do either all or part of an introductory module, called the train-up module (the course organizers shall decide on each student's need to do this, depending on his or her previous studies). This module does not carry credits but can help such students to be more adequately prepared for the rest of the course, and for their obligation to pass at least 60 course credits to be awarded the degree.
As well as the modules in theory, students will have to study a practical module for 15 credits. To complete this module, students will write a research paper supervised by a course tutor who will provide advice on the subject of the paper, which should relate to the subjects each student has studied. This paper will be counted as part of the required total.
Finally, there will be five types of educational activity on the course: lectures, seminars with student participation, problem-solving classes, the writing of assignments and in-class oral presentations.
