Seminar für Ägyptologie und Koptologie


... to the webpages of the Seminar for Egyptology and Coptic Studies, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen.

Since 1867 Göttingen has had a tradition of studying and researching the history, culture, and religion of Pharaonic and Christian Egypt and the Egyptian-Coptic language. Today's students can obtain a B.A. in "Egyptology and Coptic Studies" or a B.A. in "Ancient Cultures". An M.A. or PhD degree can be pursued in both Egyptology and Coptic Studies. We welcome guests and students from other areas to our courses.

You are invited to visit or contact us: our institute is located on the 2nd floor of the Centre for Cultural Studies, Heinrich-Düker-Weg 14. You will find a list of telephone and fax numbers on our "staff" page.

PONS - Geistes- und Kulturwissenschaften - A "bridge" for the student exchange between the german departments of Egyptology and Coptic Studies

Since 2016 students of Egyptology and Coptic Studies have the opportunity to study at one of our german partner universities for one or two semesters via the PONS-program, which is comparable to a national Erasmus. It is the successor to "PONS-Archaeology", which was geared solely towards students of Classical Archaeology.
