Course summary

Latin (MA) is mainly of interest to those who want to learn Latin to advanced level and beyond, as well as delve into their own research of a particular author or authors.

You can start from complete beginners’ level, intermediate or advanced, based on your existing qualifications and knowledge.

For those who have been studying Latin 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 this degree to increase their competency in Latin. For those interested in teaching Latin at any level, Latin (MA) can provide an internationally recognised qualification. The degrees in Latin are available only as part-time options.

Course Overview

These programmes offer students the opportunity to focus exclusively on the acquisition and/or development of Latin and can be started at beginners, intermediate or advanced level depending on their linguistic ability.

Assessment

Our language degrees in Latin 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 UWTSD Registry, and distance learners can ask for the support of the tutors in making arrangements for examinations.

Career Opportunities

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

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