Course summary

The MLitt in Classics is an intensive taught programme, designed primarily as a preparation for further research. The course allows you to specialise in a wide range of areas, including: Greek or Latin literature, ancient history, classical archaeology, reception studies, and ancient philosophy.

Highlights

  • Includes a unique and intensive core course, including training in the use of a range of literary sources and material evidence; resources and how to access them; theoretical approaches and key themes in the study of antiquity; and training in practical skills (e.g. presentation skills, digital humanities, outreach and public engagement).
  • Provides a wide foundation in key debates in the study of antiquity.
  • Offers the opportunity to focus on a wide range of specialist areas, with one-to-one supervision from leading researchers.
  • Allows students to develop their skills in Greek or Latin or to begin ancient languages from scratch, and to develop reading skills in a relevant modern language.

Careers

Postgraduates from the School of Classics go on to pursue careers in a diverse range of professional careers: for example, recent graduands have gone on to work in publishing, law, finance, teaching, university administration and museum curatorship; others have gone on to successful academic careers in the UK, North America and internationally.

If students choose not to complete the dissertation requirement for the MLitt, there is an exit award available that allows suitably qualified candidates to receive a Postgraduate Diploma. By choosing an exit award, you will finish your degree at the end of the second semester of study and receive a PGDip instead of a MLitt.
