The Ancient Philosophy course offered by Durham University is principally conceived as a research training course which aims to build on the skills in independent learning acquired in the course of the your first degree and enable you to undertake fully independent research at a higher level.
Contact time with tutors for taught modules is typically a total of 5 hours per week (rising to 7 for someone beginning Latin or ancient Greek at this level), with an emphasis on small group teaching, and a structure that maximises the value of this time, and best encourages and focuses the your own independent study and preparation. On average, around 2 hours a week of other relevant academic contact (research seminars, dissertation supervision) is also available.
