This programme will give you the opportunity to study specific periods and regions of classical civilisation, analyse the literary significance of texts, and develop your language skills in Greek and Latin.
Drawing on the diverse interests of our academic staff, the programme content is highly flexible, allowing you to choose a specialised path or a more interdisciplinary approach. The university has specialists in the central areas of Greek and Latin literature and thought, Greek and Roman history, and Classical art and archaeology. It also takes a broad view of the discipline with, for example, expertise in late antiquity, and reception history.
There are opportunities for you to hear from distinguished speakers in the weekly classics research seminar series and to share your research with your peers at the classics graduate seminar.
