Latin (Teaching degree)

Grammar school

If you are passionate about the world of ancient languages and cultures and enjoy teaching, this is the place for you.

Latin as a subject offers many exciting opportunities: You will not only be introduced to the mysteries of the Latin language, but also to the fascinating world of Roman history, literature, and philosophy. You will learn to translate Latin texts and interpret them to gain a deeper understanding of the ancient world.

What is the degree program about?

There’s no question about it: Our cultural heritage is closely linked to the Latin language – the world language at the time of Roman antiquity, which still plays an important role today, especially in medicine, theology and biology.

If you would like to intensively study the Latin-speaking ancient cultural area and be able to scientifically examine this era, then the study of Latin Philology at FAU is just right for you.

And if you want to use your knowledge of Latin in the classroom later on, you can also study Latin for the teaching profession at grammar schools.
