Course content

The MSc by Research in Classics provides a grounding in the methods and techniques of sustained research, while at the same time allowing you to pursue your own project and complete an extended thesis.

We welcome applications from anyone keen to work on topics that overlap with the research interests of our academic staff, including Greek social history, Greek law, classical literature and art, Hellenistic history and archaeology, Roman slavery, Roman art and architecture, the Roman economy, late antique and Byzantine literature, history and archaeology.

We provide you with opportunities to hear from distinguished speakers in the weekly classics research seminar series and to share your research with your peers at the Classics graduate seminar.

When applying, you must submit a research proposal explaining your plans and demonstrating your knowledge of your chosen field: this will be closely scrutinised as part of our admissions process. Two supervisors will be appointed to work with you on the project and it is a good idea to consult with prospective supervisors in advance of an application.
