We are a research-led department whose academics are actively researching and contributing to current academic debates, and students are partners in our enquiries into the ancient world. We invest in your growth as a researcher, helping you develop skills that can be applied in a range of careers.
Our Special Option modules introduce you to advanced research in classics through a wide variety of different themes, methodologies, ancient material, geographical areas and time-periods. They allow you to pursue your own interests within the discipline.
The core Approaches to Classics and Ancient History module will introduce you to the techniques and disciplines involved in advanced research in the field.
You'll undertake our Research Methods module as part of MA Classics and Ancient History, which will give you a solid grounding in research tools and skills. As part of this you'll write a research proposal and start work on your dissertation.
These also act as preparation for doctoral study, if you are considering it. On successful completion of your master's degree, you will have all of the knowledge and abilities required to move on to a PhD.
