The first semester of the BA Ancient History and Studies in Classical Antiquity

Introductory and orientation period (STEOP)

Like almost every other bachelor’s, teacher accreditation and diploma programme, the BA Ancient History and Studies in Classical Antiquity requires you to complete an introductory and orientation period (STEOP) during the first semester.

Only after having passed all STEOP examinations, you can attend additional courses and take further exams. All examination dates are scheduled in a way that allows you to continue your studies in the following semester once you have successfully completed the STEOP.
