About

An Ancient History (by Research) programme from Swansea University enables you to undertake a research project led by your own historical passions and interests.

Overview

Key Features

By taking the Ancient History (by Research) programme from Swansea University you will submit a thesis of up to 40,000 words, demonstrating original research with a significant contribution to the subject area. This is followed by an oral examination of the thesis.

You can study a topic related to the history, culture, or archaeology of the classical world, from Mycenaean Greece to the fall of the Roman Empire.

Our expertise spans from the ancient cultures and languages of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, to the history of late twentieth and early twenty-first-century Europe. The research of our staff and postgraduates is integral to the life of the department, making Swansea a dynamic and stimulating place to study.

A number of research groups also offer focus and community for staff and postgraduates:

  • the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Research (MEMO)
  • the Centre for research into Gender in Culture and Society (GENCAS)

Working at an elite academic level, you are introduced to key concepts and interpretative techniques shaping the study of ancient civilisations in the modern world.

You will develop and hone research skills needed for high-level work in any field of ancient history, and the skills and training programmes available on campus provide further support.

As a research student, you are required to attend valuable skills and training courses. You will have the opportunity to deliver presentations to research students and staff at departmental seminars, and at the College of Arts and Humanities Postgraduate conference.
