About

The Ancient History (MA) at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David offers students whose interests centre on the study of ancient history the opportunity to take a specialist higher degree tailored to those interests. 

Overview

If you wish to expand your knowledge of the history of Ancient Greek and Roman societies at a postgraduate level, then Ancient History (MA) is for you. The Ancient History scheme allows you to study a wide range of modules covering not only fascinating figures like Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, but also basic aspects of everyday life, such as warfare and the economy.

Students in the Ancient History programme from The University of Wales Trinity Saint David will take a balance of modules in both Greek and Roman history, and may focus on one or other of the two societies in their dissertation module. 

The Greek modules cover the archaic, classical and Hellenistic periods while there are three primary foci for the study of Roman history: the Republican period; the Imperial Roman West; and, the Roman East, including Egypt and India.
