The degree program in Medieval Latin Philology teaches the necessary methods and skills for contextualizing and interpreting medieval Latin texts. Students receive instruction and training in the areas of concentration written culture and book culture of the Middle Ages as well as editorial theory, providing them with the proper tools for the scholarly analysis of pre-modern textual culture. They thus acquire knowledge that is also useful in other areas of medieval studies, such as medieval history or the philology of the medieval vernacular languages. This consecutive degree program is therefore not only appropriate for students of medieval or classical Latin, but also for graduates of undergraduate programs in other fields who are interested in expanding on a specialization in medieval studies (e.g., B.A. in German Studies).

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
