The Roman Studies programme at University College Cork consists of two equal parts of 45 credits each, the first consisting of taught modules, the second of a minor research dissertation.
In part one, students take 30 credits of language modules in both Latin and Greek, and 15 credits of modules in areas of Roman history and culture, or the transmission and reception of such, all in translation. Latin and Greek can be taken either at beginner’s level or at some more advanced level. At the more advanced level, the texts studied all relate to the Roman Imperial period.
In part two, students work closely with an academic supervisor to complete a 20,000 word minor research dissertation on a topic of their choosing within the broad area of Roman Studies, taken to include Late Antiquity also.
