The MA in Ancient History provides intensive preparation for further research in Ancient History, as well as transferable skills and training that employers will value.
Two core study methods and research skills courses will prepare you for the challenge of your MA and there are additional opportunities to study Greek and Latin at every level from beginners to advanced.
After the core modules you can choose from a unique range of specialist Greek and Roman history courses, all of which are taught in very small groups or one-to-one.
This allows you to tailor a programme to suit your research interests and agenda, and to complete your large-scale supervised dissertation on the agreed topic of your choice.
You can configure a wide choice of modules to suit your interests and requirements and there are opportunities to learn different approaches and techniques, as well as ancient languages such as Greek, Latin, Akkadian, Sumerian, Egyptian and Coptic.
Our Masters programmes are designed to equip students with a wide range of transferable skills, with an emphasis on the development of both research and practical analytical skills. They equip students for further study at Postgraduate level (MPhil/PhD) and meet the training requirements of the AHRC and NERC. Research students have not only continued their studies at postdoctoral level, but also embarked on specialised long-term careers in lecturing, museum work and the heritage industry. Our degrees are a good investment in your future. Whichever direction you choose after graduation, potential employers (both nationally and internationally) appreciate the breadth of view, analytical skills and intellectual rigour that you gain by studying civilizations and periods so different from our own.
