Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of ancient Rome with the Classical Studies MA programme. Whether you're a full-time or part-time student, this one or two-year degree will sharpen your language skills in Latin and Greek, while deepening your knowledge of Roman history, art, and literature. The programme is divided into two parts: taught modules and a research dissertation.

About the course

Our MA in Classical Studies is either a one-year degree, taken full-time, or a two-year degree, taken part-time. It allows students to develop language skills in both Latin and Greek, while also developing their knowledge of the history, art, and literature of the Roman Imperial period and of the manner in which these were transmitted through the medieval and into the modern periods. It better equips students with the research and writing skills necessary in order to undertake a PhD in some aspect of Classical Studies.

The programme consists of two equal parts of 45 credits each, the first consisting of taught modules, and the second a minor research dissertation.
