CLASSICAL LANGUAGES




I. GENERAL INFORMATION


Latin and Culture of the Ancient World

Studies in Latin are open to all students of the University.
Within the program of studies aiming at a Master's degree or at a Bachelor’s degree in the Faculty of Humanities they can be freely combined with any other subjects.

New students must fill in a registration form that is available on the notice board of the Classical Languages (Philologica building, 2nd floor).


LATIN

Basic studies 30 ECTS cr.
Intermediate studies 50 ECTS cr. (35 ECTS cr. as a minor subject)
Advanced studies 80 ECTS cr. (40 ECTS cr. and Master's thesis 40 ECTS cr)

Latin may be as a major subject or as a minor subject when taking a Master's degree.


CULTURE OF THE ANCIENT WORLD 30 ECTS cr.

Students may choose studies in the culture of the ancient world as a minor subject (30 ECTS cr.).
Students are not expected to have knowledge of classical languages, but courses in Latin and Greek may be included in the programme.

A smaller programme dealing with the culture of the ancient world may be formed of the sections of studies in culture of the ancient world. (20 ECTS cr.)



Aims

In addition to learning the language, students of the Classical Languages also get acquainted with the ancient world, its cultural heritage, and the use and development of Latin in Europe from the Middle Ages to modern times. The study of Latin aims to provide the students with the ability to teach Latin, to do research in the fields of Classical Philology and in the culture of the ancient world and in its tradition, and to give them skills for transmitting information of their own speciality to the general public. As subjects of general humanistic interest, Latin and Culture of the Ancient World can support many kinds of studies and help to integrate them into the cultural heritage of Europe.

The careers available for the students of Classical Languages include, in addition to teaching and research, various cultural activities, particularly working in libraries, archives, museums. Those who are planning a career at school are very much advised to qualify as teachers of other subjects too, e.g. of modern language or history.



Outline of studies

The studies in Latin should be completed by attending exercises and lectures with final exams, or by taking book exams. The studies of Culture of the Ancient World are normally completed by taking book exams.

The students who have not studied Latin before may take book exams on cultural subjects (history, mythology, history of literature and history of art ) while still attending their basic language courses, since these units do not require knowledge of Greek or Latin. It is advisable to complete the units of Cultural History at an early stage of studies because the knowledge of these subjects helps the students to understand better the Latin texts they read. The students are also advised to improve their skills in modern languages. In addition to English, especially Italian, German and French are very important languages in the research field of classical languages and ancient world.

The students are expected to observe order of the degree requirements when taking language courses.

The students who have completed Latina 2 and Latin 3, may attend courses in Latin Morphology and Syntax 1-2; the students may attend Translation course from Finnish to Latin after having completed the courses in Latin Morphology and Syntax 1-2.

The students who have studied Latin at school, may be exempted from the courses Latin 2 and 3 wholly or partly (must be agreed on with the lecturer of Latin case by case).

At each stage of the Latin studies, students are expected to read Latin literature in the original.
The main emphasis is on the poetry and prose in the first centuries of the classical and imperial period, but the students are also expected to read Latin texts of later periods, from late Antiquity through the Middle Ages to modern times.

Exams in the sections of studies in Latin Literature (in basic studies, in intermediate studies and in advanced studies) can be taken a) by attending lectures with final exams, or b) by taking book exams on the scheduled examination days of the Faculty of Humanities. The students are expected to study texts analysing both their content and language. If the students study texts independently, they should make use of editions and commentaries, translations and other reference books (according to instructor’s advice). Lectures can be replaced by other studies according to instructor's advice.

Book exams may be taken on the scheduled examination days of the Faculty of Humanities. The student must register for them at least 7 days before the examination at the department.

The following book is recommended as a general aid in questions of Finnish terminology and name forms: MMM Antiikin sanakirja (edited in Finnish by M. Itkonen-Kaila) and Antiikin käsikirja (edited in Finnish by P. Castrén and L. Pietilä-Castrén).
