MRes programmes offer a unique opportunity to deepen and develop your knowledge of the subject by combining taught elements with research training and an independent research project.
You will study one compulsory module:

You will then choose two optional modules, which may include ancient language modules at an appropriate level. Students may choose TWO 20-credit options, one from each semester OR students may choose TWO 20-credit options in Semester 2.
Example Optional modules
- Byzantine Archaeology and Material Culture
- Gender in Byzantium II
- The Economies of the Late Roman, Byzantine and Frankish East
Ancient Language options
- Greek (1, 2, 3)
- Greek Texts
- Latin (1, 2, 3)

For more information, see our Classics and Ancient History module descriptions.
Taught modules are typically assessed by written assignment. You will also complete a 20,000-word thesis on a topic of your choice, with support from a supervisor.
Please note that the optional module information listed on the website for this programme is intended to be indicative, and the availability of optional modules may vary from year to year. Where a module is no longer available we will let you know as soon as we can and help you to make other choices.
