Classics and Ancient History (MRes)

Course Description

This course covers all areas of classics and ancient history.

Our MRes is ideal as a preparation for a PhD or teaching career, and as a degree in its own right.

In the first term, you will take a module in Research Methods and in Approaches to Classics, which gives you the skills necessary for high-level research. In the second term, you then take two options from a list that includes literature, history, art and archaeology, and language, chosen according to your interests. All students take Latin or Greek (or both) at an appropriate level, including beginners, and you then write a dissertation on a topic of your choice, for which expert supervision is offered.

Modules include:

- Approaches to Classics
- Research Methods
- Special Options (two options from a large choice)
- Latin or Ancient Greek
- Dissertation

What career can you have?

Our MRes courses equip you with vital transferable skills for a range of career paths. They also provide an ideal preparation for a PhD, or a career in teaching.

Recent graduates have gone on to careers in publishing, finance, museum curatorship, teaching, human resources, manufacturing, the police, information management and academia.
