Course content

A research degree in Ancient History enables you to undertake a research project led by your own historical passions and interests.

Our expertise spans from the ancient cultures of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, to the history of late twentieth and early twenty-first-century Europe. The research of our staff and postgraduates is integral to the life of the department, making Swansea a dynamic and stimulating place to study.

A number of research groups also offer focus and community for staff and postgraduates:

• the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Research (MEMO)

• the Centre for research into Gender in Culture and Society (GENCAS)

Working at an elite academic level, you are introduced to key concepts and interpretative techniques shaping the study of ancient civilisations in the modern world.
