Course summary

Study ancient Greece and Rome through a distinctive new programme that combines archaeology, ancient history, and classics but allows you the flexibility to choose your own unique pathway. You will acquire a firm grounding in wider spheres of evidence, such as archaeological theory, epigraphy, or numismatics.

Overview

This programme is geared towards training you in becoming independent in your study of the ancient world, while at the same time offering great flexibility by allowing you to shape the focus of your studies of the ancient world. Through a variety of optional modules you can either study both the Greek and the Roman worlds or have the opportunity to specialise in one.

The programme draws from a broad span of expertise housed in our Department of Classical & Archaeological Studies, with experts in Athens, Rome, Egypt, as well as in the study of artefacts, philosophy and ancient sciences. You will study at our beautiful Canterbury campus overlooking the Roman and Medieval city of Canterbury. During your studies, you gain training in research skills in both Greek and Roman History, and in Archaeology through small-group seminars led by internationally recognised experts in these fields.

This is an ideal programme for graduates of ancient history, classics, archaeology, history, or the wider humanities, wanting to gain a rigorous understanding of a range of fields. Options range from archaeological method and theory to Greek cosmology and Roman cities, combined with a comprehensive set of research skills for those interested in pursuing a career in academia.

Teaching and assessment

The programme is assessed by coursework for each of the modules and by the dissertation.

Programme aims

This programme aims to:

  • attract outstanding students, irrespective of race, background, gender or physical disability from both within the UK, and EU, and from overseas
  • develop new areas of postgraduate teaching in response to the advancement of scholarship and current research
  • expand student’s depth of knowledge of key subject areas in ancient Greek and Roman History and Archaeology

Recent graduates have progressed to careers in a wide range of related professional and leadership areas, including national and local museums, teaching and senior roles with archaeological organisations (national government institutions, contracting units and trusts). A large proportion of completing Master’s students have progressed onto PhD study.
