Classics (MA) concentrates on the literature and culture of the Greco-Roman world in the original language. If you wish to develop both Classical languages, then an MA in Classics is the degree for you. Classics degrees concentrate on the Greek and Latin languages at advanced level, as well as the literature of the ancient world.
Existing knowledge of either Greek or Latin at advanced level is an entrance requirement for the MA in Classics. Applicants are further expected to have a good knowledge of the second language. This will allow students on the MA Classics to focus on the analysis of the literature of the Greco-Roman world in its historical and cultural contexts.
For students without prior or sufficient knowledge of Greek and/or Latin there is the possibility to study one or both languages on our Postgraduate Certificates/Diplomas (PG Dip/Cert) in Greek and Latin, in preparation for entering the Classics MA at a later stage.
