About

Immerse yourself in the advanced study of Greco-Roman civilisation with the Antiquity - Classics and Ancient History Pathway programme from University of Birmingham.

Overview

This Antiquity - Classics and Ancient History Pathway programme from University of Birmingham offers an ideal opportunity to pursue your interests in the Greco-Roman world in greater depth and also provides an ideal foundation for further research at doctoral level. All students take at least one classical language module, plus a general module on Research and Scholarship designed to introduce them to the professional skills required by an independent researcher. 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 Classics and Ancient History 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.

Why study this course?

  • Established expertise - the University of Birmingham has a distinguished tradition of Classical scholarship going back more than a hundred years. 
  • Flexibility - with such a range of expertise available, you will be supported to explore your specific interests, particularly through the dissertation.
  • Exceptional learning resources – you will have access to a range of learning resources including environmental and material culture teaching collections, the Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology Museum, and the Danford Collection of African art and artefacts.
  • Research strengths - Times Higher Education ranked us among the top five departments of Classics in the country for our performance in the latest Research Excellence Framework exercise.
  • Be a part of an exciting department – you will join a lively postgraduate community with many opportunities to enhance your learning from events, research seminars and conferences.

Programme Structure

  • Research and Scholarship in Classics and Ancient History
  • This module ensures that students across the range of sub-disciplines in Classics and Ancient History acquire the necessary generic and specific skills needed for further research. 
  • These will include advanced bibliographic skills, familiarity with theoretical and critical approaches and schools of thought, technical skills such as techniques of epigraphy or numismatics where appropriate. Delivery will take place in seminar formats, with sub-disciplines offering different break-out sessions as needed.
