Our MA in Antiquity offers a choice of eight pathways: Ancient History, Byzantine Studies, Classics, Classical Archaeology, Egyptology, European Archaeology, Late Antiquity and Roman History and Archaeology. The pathway chosen will define the title of the MA awarded. The pathways cover the full range of subjects associated with study of the ancient world and offer intensive preparation for further research and a unique opportunity to undertake interdisciplinary research.
This is the degree for you if you enjoyed studying the ancient world as an undergraduate, and encountered subjects which you would now like to study in greater depth and at a higher level; or if you want to explore aspects of antiquity not included in your first degree. It allows you to specialise, but also encourages you to branch out into related disciplines and to consider interdisciplinary approaches.
Each pathway includes two core research modules (Research Skills and Approaches to Images, Material Culture and Texts), a pathway-specific core module and three optional modules from across all the pathways, offering the opportunity for interdisciplinary study. You will also complete a 15,000-word dissertation on a subject of your choice, with expert one-to-one supervision.
