Postgraduate taught courses
The department offers three traditional taught courses: MA in Ancient History, MA in Classics, MA in Classical Art and Archaeology. A further taught course, the MA in Late Antique and Byzantine Studies, is offered by the History department. These courses are intercollegiate, offered jointly with King’s College London and University College London. Together, they offer an unparalleled range of courses that provides for around 70 students per year.
Students choose from a menu of courses which covers not only Greek and Latin literature, the major periods of ancient history, ancient philosophy and the Greek and Latin languages, but also key technical skills such as papyrology, epigraphy, and palaeography. The courses provide ideal training for those considering further research, as well as an additional year of high level study for those seeking to add to their undergraduate qualification.
