Course summary

The one year MSt is an intensive and high-pressure course designed primarily for those students who wish to prepare for doctoral work by means of a shorter course than the two-year MPhil in Ancient History. For this degree you will write a dissertation of up to 10,000 words and complete two other options.

One of these options is a language. Competence in ancient Greek and/or Latin being a requirement for doctoral work in Ancient History, many MSt students choose one of these languages as their linguistic option: both are available at elementary and intermediate level.

For those whose Greek and Latin are already serviceable, there is an opportunity to acquire one of the principal languages of scholarship in Ancient History, French, Italian, or German; or to lay foundations in another ancient language relevant to their interests, such as Hebrew, Aramaic or Coptic.

Teaching is provided in the form of University classes and/or individual or small-group tutorials. The language option is assessed at the end of the year by a three-hour written examination.

Many MSt graduates go on to take doctorates, either in Oxford or elsewhere. Many subsequently take up university teaching or research posts after finishing their doctorates. Those who do not take doctorates go into a variety of occupations, including teaching, publishing, administration, business and other professions.
