Classics MLitt

Course Description

Course overview

In Classics at Newcastle we have a long and distinguished international reputation for our research and teaching. Latin and Greek have been taught here since 1874, and Classical Archaeology since 1931. Our staff include scholars of outstanding international reputation, and our research covers all major aspects of the study of the ancient world.

We welcome postgraduate students in any of our areas of research expertise. We cover a vast range of classical subjects, from material culture and history, through language and literature, to philosophy and the history of science and medicine. We also have strong links with related disciplines such as History, Archaeology, and Modern Languages.

MLitt supervision is normally available in the following areas: Ancient history and classical archaeology (the history and archaeology of pre-Roman and Roman Italy, the late Roman Republic, Greco–Roman religion, the social and cultural history of the Roman Empire, Roman Greece, Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt, history of the Jews, Greek art and archaeology, the history and archaeology of the ancient Near East); Classical language and literature (Latin language and literature, ancient oratory and rhetoric, Latin poetry, ancient historiography, Greek tragedy, Greek influence on later literature, Greek and Roman music); Philosophy and science (ancient and early Christian philosophy, the history of Greek and Roman medicine, Greek and Roman music, the exact sciences in Graeco-Roman antiquity)

There is a lively research culture in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology, with a seminar programme to which academic staff, graduate students, and distinguished visiting speakers contribute. Our graduate students run an enthusiastic and energetic Postgraduate Forum. Their activities chiefly include publishing an online peer-reviewed journal, and organising bi-monthly seminars, at which students deliver papers to their peers and academic staff. There is also an annual postgraduate conference, at which you will present your research to other postgraduates and academics from around the region and nationally.
