As well as your 20,000 word dissertation, you will study one core module in Research Skills and choose two optional modules. Your options can be chosen from a range which typically includes:
Beginners' Greek or Latin
These modules provide an intensive introduction to Greek or Latin. They aim to provide you with the basic linguistic skills needed to acquire a reading knowledge of Greek or Latin for the purposes of research.
Advanced Greek or Latin
These modules consolidate linguistic skills to enable you to work independently on Greek or Latin texts in the original language, building upon existing knowledge. They develop analytical and critical skills by means of advanced grammar and reading classes focusing in detail on a text or texts. Texts chosen will generally reflect the interests of students in the group.
Modules chosen from the MA Antiquity
- Greek Drama since 1900
