Course summary

This programme offers a unique opportunity to deepen and develop your knowledge of classical antiquity by combining a 20,000-word research thesis with research training and taught elements. It can lead to doctoral research, but also provides the chance to undertake scholarly research as an enrichment of undergraduate study or for career development purposes. Your research will be supported by three taught modules. A research skills training module equips you with a range of specialised and generic skills, including textual criticism, document handling, literary theory, information resources, thesis presentation and bibliographical management. Students will be able to draw on a wide range of academic expertise in the history, culture, and languages of the ancient world. They will also become part of, and contribute to, the lively international community of the College of Arts and Law Graduate School, which offers dedicated research resources and a supportive working environment. This degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University.
