The MA Classics concentrates on the literature and culture of the Greco-Roman world in the original language.
If you wish to develop both of your of Classical languages then an MA in Classics is the degree for you. Classics degrees concentrate on the Greek and Latin languages at advanced level, as well as the literature of the ancient world. Existing knowledge of either Greek or Latin at advanced level is an entrance requirement for all Classics degrees. It is expected that candidates would have good knowledge of both languages to study for the MA in Classics. Some students progress from the PGDip in Greek, and the PGDip in Latin, to the MA in Classics.

An MA degree in Classics involves a range of assessment methods. All language modules are assessed by both coursework and examinations. Students in advanced languages have the opportunity to explore texts in detail, both in literary and in linguistic terms, through assessed critical commentaries and essays. Additionally, you will be assessed through bibliographic exercises, presentations – oral and PowerPoint based, creation of abstracts, in-house conference papers, article reviews, creation of project plans and, of course, the dissertation. This variety of assessment helps develop skills in presenting material in clear, professional and a lucid manner, whether orally or in writing.
The programme provides a broad foundation for postgraduate work, by laying particular emphasis on the languages, methodologies and research tools needed for independent advanced study, thus acting as training for students who intend to undertake an MPhil or PhD.
The course also provides a professional qualification for teachers or others seeking Continuing Professional Development.
