Classics

This Master's programme enables students to acquire and develop skills as an independent researcher in the field of classics. We offer a broad range of options which can either be used to construct a self-contained programme of study or act as the springboard for doctoral research. Students have the opportunity to begin or continue the study of Latin or Greek, enabling those who have not had a 'traditional' classical education to acquire linguistic skills necessary for progression to higher research in classics. The programme draws on the University's rich holdings of ancient material culture (particularly coins) and manuscripts where appropriate. This programme enables students to acquire and develop skills as independent researchers in the field of Classics. It is primarily intended for students who have studied classics at undergraduate level and wish to take their studies to a higher level, but it is also suitable for students with a background in other periods of history, philosophy, art or literature who wish to develop their studies with reference.
