Course content

The MA provides a thorough preparation in research techniques for those considering further research in the fields of art, numismatics or epigraphy, or working on an historical topic that involves the consideration of material evidence. It will also provide a detailed understanding of ancient visual and material culture to prepare those intending to entering a career in museums and curatorial work or in education.

The Ancient Greece route is based mostly at Warwick but includes one module taught at the British School at Athens, which focuses on a different skill set for handling ancient Greek material culture from year to year (numismatics, epigraphy, pottery, art). Admission to the module in Greece is subject to the discretion of the British School in Athens and cannot be guaranteed by Warwick. If unsuccessful, you would revert to the Warwick-only route. You would be expected to fund your travel to Greece. You will go to Athens in the late spring/early summer before returning to Warwick to complete their dissertations.
