Course content

The MA in Classics will prepare you intensively for further research in Classics, whilst also providing more generic skills and training useful in any job.

Two core courses provide study methods and research skills training, and there'll be the opportunity to enhance your language skills from a range of modules in Greek and Latin at every level from beginners to advanced.

You can then choose from a unique range of specialist modules in the literature and culture of the classical world (and its later reception). These are taught in very small groups or one-to-one, so you can tailor a programme to your research interests and agenda.

Your programme will culminate with a large-scale dissertation on a relevant topic of your choice, arranged between you and a dedicated supervisor.

If your interest is primarily in the history and society of the classical world, you should consider the MA in Ancient History.
