Course summary

Overview:

Study Greek and Roman art and archaeology at one of the largest Classics departments in the UK. Our course is intercollegiate with options taught at King’s, UCL and Royal Holloway, giving you a wide range of topics to choose from as well as being able to take advantage of our close links to the Institute of Classical Studies, one of the UK’s best Classical libraries.

On the course you will have the unique opportunity to acquire technical skills provided by optional modules in papyrology, epigraphy and palaeography.

Key benefits:

Study in one of the UK’s largest and oldest departments of Classics. Classics has been taught on the Strand for over 200 years.

Unrivalled location for the study of the ancient world thanks to London’s unique range of specialist libraries, museums and galleries.

Extraordinarily wide choice of modules, drawing on the resources of the whole of the University of London.

Students on the course have gone on to careers in education, journalism, finance, politics and cultural sectors amongst others.

Description:

Through this Classical Art & Archaeology MA you will examine painting, pottery, sculpture and mosaics, and explore the craftsmanship that produced archeologically significant works. Traditionally, classical archaeology has focused on the art history of Classical Greece and Italy, but has more recently branched out geographically and chronologically. Archaeology has also become more theoretical in recent decades.

This course explores the relationship between humans and their material environment. We consider engagement in field projects as essential for the continuing health of the discipline. All trends are well represented here at King’s.

Our expert staff cover an extraordinarily wide range of specialisms including Bronze Age Aegean, Late Antique and Byzantine archaeology and architecture, Roman Britain, Persian monuments, Greek pottery and Roman mosaics, while many other staff members employ art historical and archaeological methods in their work.

Career prospects:

Our graduates use the skills and knowledge they develop with us to careers in teaching, journalism, cultural management, or the financial sector or to go on to further study.
