What students have said:

'I’ve learnt so much about implementation methodologies and how to apply them.'

'It’s been great having such a range of speakers from different backgrounds and disciplines…you wouldn't normally have access to this - so it was a real privilege.'

'The course has been really beneficial in meeting others working and thinking about how best to improve services and implement change – both fellow students and experts across the field.'

'We have had lectures and workshops led by bodies such as NHS Improving Quality and King’s Improvement Science, and there are many opportunities to attend conferences and increase exposure to work that is taking place across London and the UK.'

'It’s a challenging and busy course, but I think we will all get a huge amount out of it! '

'As a relatively new and developing field, it has been really interesting to be exposed to current thinking around best practice, and to see how this is still a dynamic and shared learning process.'

'It really helped me consider moving beyond just undertaking a research project and how that research can actually be implemented in practice.'

'The research methods and ethics modules that we have also undertaken so far have given a really good grounding in understanding how research works and ties into the NHS.'

Course detail

Archaeology is the study of human activities as preserved in the material record, such as domestic and public buildings, rituals, mortuary practices, and the use of symbols. History of art explores painting, pottery, sculpture and mosaics, and the craftsmanship that produced these works. Traditionally, classical archaeology focused on the art history of Classical Greece and Italy, but has more recently branched out geographically and chronologically. Archaeology has also become more theoretical in recent decades, exploring the relationship between humans and their material environment. Furthermore, engagement in field projects is essential for the continuing health of the discipline. All trends are well represented here at King's.

The MA programme in Classical Art & Archaeology is organised on an intercollegiate basis, so that the programme offerings combine the expertise of staff in all three of the participating colleges - King's, UCL and Royal Holloway. It centres on the University's Institute of Classical Studies, which not only contains a world-class research library, but also hosts the richest programme of seminars, conferences, and occasional lectures for this subject area in the UK.

- Course purpose -

This programme offers advanced study of Greek and Roman archaeology and art; it is intended either as a further year's study after a first degree or as training in the technical disciplines needed to undertake doctoral research.

- Course format and assessment -

Full-time study: 6-8 hours of taught classes per week. Part-time study: 2-6 hours of taught classes per week. Modules are assessed by coursework and/or examinations. The 12,000 word dissertation enables students to research a topic of their choice, working one-to-one with an academic supervisor.

Career prospects

Leads to further research or careers in education, journalism, finance, politics and cultural sectors.
