Course summary

Overview

The MA Classics and Ancient History provides intensive preparation for further research into the literature, cultures, history and societies of ancient Greece and Rome and their later reception. At the same time, it delivers key transferable skills and training that employers value.

Core modules prepare you for the challenge of your MA, helping you to develop thematic perspectives on the ancient world and understand the big ideas that inform contemporary research. They also build your skills in research and communication, encouraging you to adopt effective strategies for gathering and organising disparate information, analysing complex evidence, evaluating propositions and articulating arguments for different audiences and occasions. As well as pursuing independent research across your degree, you will work with your fellow students to coordinate and participate in a research colloquium.
