Classics and Ancient History

This programme will build and expand on your previous studies, enabling you to specialise in either classics or ancient history. The course is primarily designed for students who have studied ancient history, classics or classical studies as their 1st degree. Students can choose to study from one of two pathways: classics or ancient history. Students interested in classics will engage in advanced study of the literatures, languages and cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome. Students who want to specialise in ancient history will focus on the histories, societies and cultures of Archaic and Classical Greece, Rome and the wider Mediterranean world. The highly flexible course offers students the opportunity to study a wide range of topics reflecting the research specialisms of our staff across ancient history, classics and archaeology, including Byzantine studies, whilst developing their own research interests and professional skills.
