Specific admission conditions

Entry profile

Applicants must hold an official Spanish or accredited foreign university degree, preferably in the area of Arts and Humanities or in the area of Social and Legal Sciences.

No specific prior studies of the contents of the Master's degree are required. However, to matriculate in the optional subjects of subject 2 ("Advanced Studies in Classical Philology"), it is considered advisable to have previous knowledge of Greek and Latin languages, at the level of those acquired in the degrees in Classical Philology, Sciences and Languages of Antiquity, and equivalents, which are optimal for the completion of this Master's degree.

If students cannot demonstrate this prior knowledge, they should matriculate in the optional subjects of module 3 ("Advanced Studies in Classical Culture").

The master's degree will be taught in Spanish. Therefore, students whose mother tongue is not Spanish must certify a level of Spanish equal to or higher than level B2 of the European Framework of Reference for Languages with the DELE or SIELE certificates.
