Course content

The MSc in Classical Art and Archaeology studies the ancient Greek and Roman worlds from the Iron Age through the Late Roman/Early Christian period through their material remains. It draws upon the expertise of several members of the Classics subject Area who have research interests and experience of teaching and graduate supervision in this area, and complements others in Classics, such as Ancient History and Hellenistic Studies.

The programme provides an excellent academic experience both for those who wish to undertake a taught MSc course at graduate level and for those who require the training and confidence that the MSc degree provides as the basis for further graduate study or as a foundation for careers in museum work, the cultural heritage industry or education.
