About

The M.A. in Classics is a two-year degree from University of British Columbia that allows students to gain the necessary proficiency in Greek and Latin to proceed to a Ph.D.

Overview

The M.A. in Classics program from University of British Columbia is designed to provide core skills in philology, and to be flexible enough to allow for specialization in Ancient History, Literature, or Philosophy

What makes the program unique?

The department offers students a unique opportunity to take advanced seminars in Greek and Latin as well as opportunities to research and learn about the material culture, religious beliefs, languages and histories of the ancient Mediterranean and Near East. We are a small but engaged department and are able to provide students with programs tailored to individual interests. Students will have frequent interaction with faculty and the academic community. 

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Students choose from a broad range of coursework in the archaeology and material culture, religion and mythology, literature and ancient languages, and history and cultures of the ancient Mediterranean and Near East from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity. In the second year of the program, students write a thesis under the supervision of a faculty member.
