The Antiquity MA: Roman History and Archaeology pathway focuses on the study of one of the world’s great empires, encompassing both history and archaeology, and tracing the development of imperialism in the west. You will gain an in-depth understanding of the latest thinking on the Roman city, its societies, and the traces they have left, with a focus on Italy, North Africa and the Western Provinces. You will also benefit from our own collection of Greek and Roman artefacts in the Institute of Archaeology and Antiquity Museum. It is an excellent preparation for further research at doctoral level, but also stands alone as an opportunity to pursue your interests in greater depth than was possible at undergraduate level. This is one of several pathways available on the Antiquity MA
This is the degree for you if you enjoyed studying the ancient world as an undergraduate, and would now like to study Roman History and Archaeology in greater depth and at a higher level; or if you want to explore this aspect of antiquity and it wasn’t 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.
You will study three core modules:
Empire and Identity: The City in the Roman West
Approaches to Images, Material Culture and Texts
You will also choose three optional modules from across all of the programme’s pathways, offering the opportunity for interdisciplinary study. You will also complete a 15,000-word dissertation on a subject of your choice, with one-to-one expert supervision
