The course features small-group teaching and, while at Reading, you will benefit from facilities including the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology , the University Library and a dedicated postgraduate room in the heart of the Classics Department. We are located just a short distance from Oxford and London, where you can visit major collections important for research in classics and ancient history. Prominent research from our team includes Matthew Nicholls' digital model of Rome, and its associated commercial and public-facing offshoots, including, for example, our MOOC on Rome.
