Course summary

This programme will enhance your skills as an ancient historian. You will undertake training in key fields such as classical languages or historiography, which will equip you with the essential skills for your Greek or Roman History research project in any period from Archaic Greece to Imperial Rome and its provinces. You will also have the opportunity to choose modules from across the MA Antiquity syllabus which are complementary to your research. Your thesis will be on an aspect of Greek or Roman history, culture or society. It will be supervised by a specialist in the area of your work. A research skills training module equips you for your thesis with a range of specialised and generic skills, including textual criticism, document handling, literary theory, information resources, thesis presentation and bibliographical management. This programme offers a unique opportunity to deepen and develop your knowledge of ancient history by combining a substantial thesis with research training and taught elements through your taught modules. It can lead to doctoral research, but also provides the chance to undertake scholarly research as enrichment of undergraduate study or for career development purposes.
