Latin qualification

In order to graduate from our department, you need an additional qualification in Latin.

  • If you have successfully completed at least ten hours of Latin per week at a secondary school, the additional Latin examination is not required. You have to prove this by providing your school transcripts  during the personal admission.
  • If you did not study Latin in school, it is sufficient to pass the additional exam in Latin during the degree programme. The additional exam may not be the last exam of your degree programme.

If you do not have the required proof, the need to pass the additional exam will be specified during the admission procedure. This will be stated in your student record sheet (Studienblatt).

The additional exam can be passed by using the offered courses of the Department for Classical Philology. You get all information at the StudiesServiceCenter (SSC) Philological and Cultural Studies.
