Philology is the study of language in written historical sources; it is a combination of literary studies, history, and linguistics. This discipline involves the examination of texts and their language to understand their significance, development, and cultural context. Students learn about the evolution of languages, textual criticism, and the interpretation of ancient and modern texts. The curriculum often includes the study of classical languages like Latin and Greek, as well as various modern languages and literatures. Skills developed include critical analysis, linguistic proficiency, and historical interpretation. Graduates find opportunities in academia, archival work, linguistic research, or any field requiring deep expertise in language history and textual studies.
