Course content

This course focuses on Greek and Latin Literature in its cultural context. It examines different ways of reading and using literary texts across a wide range of authors, genres and periods, combined with opportunities for in-depth specialisation in a particular area.

As well as learning about a range of methodologies and approaches, you will also be encouraged to explore responses to Latin and Greek literature in later cultures (from Neo-Latin epic). You will have the opportunity to begin or continue an ancient language as necessary to bring your language skills up to an appropriate level for studying Classical texts in the original.

This MA will be a fulfilling experience for those interested in the literature of the classical past as well as excellent training for anyone considering doctoral research.
