Masters degrees in Latin equip postgraduates with the skills to critically analyse and understand the origins and development of Latin, and its historical linguistic and literary uses.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Classical Greek and Ancient Languages. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Classics, History, or Languages.
As one of the world’s oldest languages and the lingua franca of the Roman Empire, Latin has provided the basis for many linguistic, literary, and cultural traditions. As such, courses in this field offer a broad range of areas for you to specialise in.
For example, you might wish to explore the origins of Latin and its relationship with other Classical languages, or specialise in topics such as modern Latin usage and translation. Alternatively, you might investigate the historical role of Latin within the development of literature.
You could also explore the continued use and significance of Latin within diverse contexts, including theological liturgy or scientific classification. Similarly, you might examine the historical, social and political role of Latin in the spread of the Roman empire and its aftermath.
Careers in this field may include roles in academia and publishing, the media such as journalism, or even heritage management on behalf of institutions such as museums.
