PhD Programme in Ancient Languages
A Master's degree in Ancient Languages, Biblical Hebrew, another
Semitic language, Greek or Latin or another qualification (e.g. a
Master's degree in Theology or Linguistics) accepted by the Senate as
equivalent. Students who do not have a Master's degree in a language
must undergo an assessment in the language in which they wish to
specialise. Additional work will be required if it is found necessary.
Advanced knowledge of a second ancient language is a corequisite.
The programme requires the writing of a dissertation which contains the
results of independent and original research on a research problem.
