Course detail

- Description -

The MA programme in Classics 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.

The programme consists of a three optional modules, and a dissertation. The compulsory colloquium, Undertaking Research in Classics, taken as preparation for writing the dissertation, provides particularly concentrated training in research techniques and methodology.

Modules are taught both with texts in the original languages and with translated texts. Besides purely literary and linguistic topics, modules may also be taken from the syllabuses for the MAs in Ancient History, Classical Archaeology & Art, and Late Antique & Byzantine Studies, including Latin and Ancient Greek at both intermediate and beginners levels.

- Course purpose -

This programme offers advanced study of the classical world, with special reference to Greek and Latin language and literature; 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 in the field of Classics.

- 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.
