We normally require a UK 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent.
The Postgraduate Diploma is awarded for satisfactory performance in taught modules worth a total of 120/130 credits in semesters 1 and 2. M Litt candidates additionally write a dissertation of up to 15,000 words over the summer on a topic approved by the Course Director.
All students take the core module, Themes and Methods in Ancient History, which is taught initially in conjunction with the core module in Classics, but then moves into more specialist areas for Ancient Historians. This is a 60 credit module taught in weekly seminars throughout the year.
A further 60 credits are required. These may be obtained by either taking a 30 credit module each semester, chosen from the Ancient History modules listed below, or taking Beginners' Greek 1 and Beginners' Greek 2, or beginners' Latin 1 and beginners' Latin 2 (40 credits in total), OR one 30 credit module, chosen from the Ancient History modules..
With the permission of the relevant Head(s) of School, up to 30 credits may be taken from other programmes (Classical Studies, Greek or Latin) taught by the School of Classics or by other Schools.
You should make your choice of modules in consultation with the Course Director who will enter your choices onto your computerised record when you matriculate. Subsequent changes of module need the approval of the Course Director.
Master's: 9 months of ongoing coursework and a supervised dissertation of 15,000 words in the final 3 months. MPhil: 9 months of ongoing coursework followed by a supervised thesis of 40,000 words in the 2nd year.
