Course content

The MA in Ancient History and Classical Culture is a rigorous course that concentrates on the history and culture of ancient Greece and Rome, drawing on the expertise of internationally recognised scholars.

This fascinating course allows you to to observe how every aspect of the modern world has its roots in the civilisations of the Classical world.

You can study from the Mycenaean world to the later Roman Empire, specialising in history or literature, or a combination of the two. Ancient Greek and Latin can also be studied.

You are encouraged to build a methodological awareness as you are introduced to key concepts and interpretative techniques which have shaped the study of ancient civilisations in the modern world.

Throughout the course you will hone the specialist research skills needed for high-level work in any field of Ancient History and Classical Civilisation.
