This specialisation covers Ancient Egypt from its beginnings and its role as a major player during the Bronze Age until the Christian period. Textual and material data are studied together.
Leiden University's Research MA specialisation in Egyptology traces its roots back to the 19th century, when the city's National Museum of Antiquities acquired and started to study its famous collection of Egyptian antiquities. Today's programme the only one of its kind in the Netherlands combines this tradition with the latest results of international scholarship. The department is housed in the library of the Netherlands Institute for the Near East (NINO), one of the world's largest libraries on Egyptology. Its staff is actively engaged in research projects covering a wide range of topics, such as Egyptian mortuary inscriptions, archaeological and epigraphic field work in Egypt, and Coptic magical texts.
Programme internationalization: * Studying abroad is optional.
This programme has a workload of 120 ECTS.
