Course content

This innovative degree course is concerned with the visual culture of classical antiquity and modern theories of its study – Greek and Roman sculpture, architecture, mosaics, painting, urbanism. It brings together archaeological, art historical and historical approaches to examine how visual material was treated and understood in antiquity and reinvented for centuries to come.

As well as learning how to look at ancient visual evidence and to use it to construct art-historical and historical arguments, students also study a range of responses to and theories around it – from various periods of classicism in antiquity to modern advertising; from stylistic analysis to modern media studies.

This course will enable you to develop your understanding of the visual culture of classical antiquity. It combines iconographical, theoretical and cultural approaches to a wide range of visual material to examine both its functions and resonances in antiquity, and its restoration, decontextualisation and reinvention in the modern world. This MA is a fulfilling experience for those interested in the art and architecture of the classical past as well as excellent training for anyone considering doctoral research.
