Course summary

Greek (MA) provides a self-contained period of structured but challenging study for anyone who wishes to pursue an interest in Ancient Greek language and literature.

Students can start their study from complete beginners level, or at advanced level, based on their existing qualifications and knowledge.

For those who have been studying Greek privately, we offer a test to place them in the correct level of language learning.

PhD candidates, or those planning to embark on a PhD, can use our degrees to increase their competency in Greek. For those interested in teaching Greek at any level, the degrees can provide an internationally recognised qualification. The degrees in Greek are available only as part-time distance-learning options.

Course Overview

Greek (MA) offers students the opportunity to focus exclusively on the acquisition and/or development of ancient Greek and can be started at beginners, intermediate or advanced level depending on linguistic knowledge.

The PG Certificate is comprised of 60 credits, the PG Diploma of 120 credits, and the MA of 180 credits (including a 60-credit dissertation).

Assessment

Our language degrees in Greek involve a wide range of assessment methods. In addition to traditional essays and exams, you will be assessed through commentaries and in-class tests. This variety of assessment helps develop skills in presenting material in clear, professional and a lucid manner, whether orally or in writing.

Many language modules include an examination; examination arrangements are communicated to distance learners by the TSD Registry, and distance learners can ask for the support of the tutors in making arrangements for examinations.

Career Opportunities

Greek (MA) provides a strong foundation for postgraduate work, particularly for those interested in working on Greek language or linguistics. Many students study for the PG Certificate or Diploma in Greek in advance of undertaking a PhD in Classics.

The course also provides a professional qualification for teachers or others seeking Continuing Professional Development.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert.
