The Approaches to Classics and Ancient History module introduces you to the disciplines, techniques and theoretical approaches that are necessary for advanced work or research in the field. It equips you with a grounding in the skills that are required to engage in this work.
On the Research Methods module you'll learn about IT and bibliographic research tools, and skills including academic writing, designing a research project and writing a research proposal.
For the Dissertation module, you'll develop research skills, critical responses, and independent judgment as you research a topic of your choice and produce a dissertation.
