Mgr. Jana Mikulová, Ph.D.
Bachelor's degree in full-time form. The language of instruction is Czech.
The programme can be studied as a single subject or in combination with another programme.
This study programme represents an exciting journey to the origins of European culture and erudition. It enables students to get to know the thoughts and works of famous ancient writers, scholars, philosophers, generals, and politicians in their original form, as these works comprise the basis of the European values of humanity. The programme also enables students to get acquainted with the ancient Greco-Roman world in the broader context. The studies cultivate general cultural knowledge as well as analytical skills, which are nowadays required in several fields. The minor module of the Bachelor’s degree programme focuses on the knowledge of Latin language . As such, it primarily serves to the students of those study programmes, in which Latin is potentially one of the source languages (e.g., philosophy, ancient history, history, classical archaeology, study of religions, general linguistics and Indo-European comparative linguistics etc.). The major and the completus modules of the programme lead to the in-depth knowledge of Latin grammar, ancient literature, and other disciplines pertaining to all important historical and socio-cultural aspects of the ancient world via courses on philosophy, mythology, history, and other related disciplines and via excursions to significant museums. An essential part of the study involves reading texts in their original language, which allows students to gain competence in multi-level interpretations of the original texts (grammatical, literary, and socio-historical). The study of an Indo-European language with complex morphology and syntax will deepen the general linguistic competences and facilitate the understanding of roman languages as well as of a wide range of technical terminology in various fields of study. The knowledge acquired by the study of the ancient world and Latin erudition/culture leads to a better orientation in the majority of fields of European culture and scholarship.
