This degree program focuses on the language and literature of ancient Greece from Homer (8th century BC) to the end of Antiquity (6th century AD). In contrast to modern philology, however, the focus is not limited to literature in a strict sense but also includes philosophical and scientific texts. The goal of the program is to teach students to understand and interpret the preserved corpus of Greek literature using the methods of philology (linguistics and literary theory). The curriculum is divided into three stages: In the first semester, students hone their language skills in Greek-German and German-Greek translation courses. In the second stage, which ends with the intermediate examination, students develop their translating skills further in reading and stylistics courses and learn the fundamentals of textual interpretation in introductory seminars. They are introduced to the most important philological methods and disciplines, including textual criticism, literary theory, prosody, rhetoric, and mythology. After passing the intermediate examination, students perfect their skills in the methodical interpretation of texts in advanced reading, stylistics, and interpretation courses and learn how to conduct independent philological research.

It is possible to study music at the University of Music in Freiburg and art at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe. Make sure to inquire about the admission requirements at these institutions before deciding on these fields. You may combine any teaching degree field with either of these two artistic fields. However, it is not possible to combine music and art.
Please also note that it is not possible to be admitted as a student teacher with a combination of any of the following fields: Catholic theology, Protestant theology, Jewish theology, Islamic religious studies. It is not possible to combine one of these fields with philosophy/ethics either.

Disclaimer
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.
