Classics

This programme allows students to study in depth a topic related to the languages, literature, philosophy, and culture of the classical world, from Homer to the later Roman Empire, and the reception of the ancient world in modern culture. Students enrolled on this course study a topic of their own devising and complete an independent, original research thesis of 40,000 words on a classical topic. In the department, there is extensive competence in supervising a wide variety of topics relating to Greek and Roman literature. Particular research strengths include: ancient narrative literature; the reception of earlier literature in Hellenistic and Imperial fiction; Greek tragedy; ancient philosophy; Greek and Roman political thought. Students are encouraged to develop a methodological awareness and are introduced to key concepts and interpretative techniques that shape the study of the civilisations of Greece and Rome. This programme develops research skills needed for high-level work within this field.
