The Antiquity MA: Classics pathway is for students interested in advanced study of any aspect of Greco-Roman civilisation.
Modules emphasise independent interpretation of primary evidence, and encourage you to draw connections across historical periods, between different types of evidence (textual, archaeological, iconographic), and between different cultures. This programme offers an ideal opportunity to pursue your interests in the Graeco-Roman world in greater depth and also provides an ideal foundation for further research at doctoral level. All students take at least one classical language module, plus a general module on Research and Scholarship designed to introduce them to the professional skills required by an independent researcher. This is one of several pathways available on the Antiquity MA.
This is the degree for you if you enjoyed studying the ancient world as an undergraduate, and would now like to study Classics and Ancient History in greater depth and at a higher level; or if you want to explore this aspect of antiquity and it wasn't included in your first degree. It allows you to specialise, but also encourages you to branch out into related disciplines and to consider interdisciplinary approaches. The research modules will train you to a professional level in bibliographic research, project development, information management and retrieval, oral presentation, active listening, and a range of subject-specific skills tailored to this pathway.
