Course Summary

On MA Ancient and Medieval History, you will take a combination of Greek and Roman history courses from classics and medieval history courses from history, together producing a well-rounded experience bridging the ancient and medieval worlds. The strength of Edinburgh in the history of late antiquity, Byzantium and the early medieval west means that the two subjects are well integrated. Courses are taught through a combination of lectures, seminar groups and tutorials. Some classes take you out of the classroom and into the local museums and libraries. You will be assessed by exams and coursework, and sometimes by practical exercises.

You will gain practical, intellectual and theoretical skills that are highly valued by employers. You will gain rigorous mental training in a range of disciplines, enabling you to demonstrate intellectual flexibility and the ability to adapt to new situations and to learn new skills. By working with distant sources and inconclusive evidence, you will learn to think logically and to develop sound research and analytical skills. You will learn how to make links between what you already know and what you still need to find out. You will be taught how to compile and critically evaluate evidence in order to formulate and present an argument coherently. Our Classics graduates have gone on to pursue a range of career paths. Previous graduates now work in journalism, museums, teaching, academia, accountancy, finance, IT, publishing, the armed forces, the legal profession and the civil service.
