The MA in the History and Archaeology of the Greek and Roman Worlds allows you to integrate the sometimes contradictory material and textual evidence of antiquity, together with their different forms of heritage.

You will learn an unusually broad range of advanced methods in studying Greece and Rome – cultural, intellectual and archaeological – from antiquity to the 21st century. When choosing from our variety of optional modules, you can specialise in either civilisation, or study both. We invite you to join our thriving, creative, and supportive comm­unity of scholars beyond the classroom in regular postgraduate social meetings, weekly seminars, and site visits.

This one-year MA degree (which can also be taken over two years as a part-time course) allows you to develop a broad understanding of ways to analyse sites, architecture, cities, objects, texts, and archaeological data. It allows you to develop a wide range of skills in interpreting texts, objects and data related to ancient Greece and Rome, and teaches you how to ask the most important questions. The course is designed to give you a thorough training in the theories, methods, and concepts now shaping the study of the ancient world.

You can gain the skills of the archaeologist, the ancient Greek or Latin linguist, and the historian, through hands-on learning at fieldwork sites, in the classroom, and in museums and archives. With this qualification, you will be equipped for future work involving independent research skills, in academia, heritage, or beyond.

Two core modules in history and archaeology will provide a solid foundation for your dissertation, a substantial independent research project on a topic of your choice. In our wide range of optional modules, you will hone your analytical skills and deepen your knowledge of Greece and Rome. All MA modules are informed by cutting edge research and taught by friendly, internationally-recognised experts, who will provide personalised supervision as you develop your own research specialisms.

The Department of Classical and Archaeological Studies is advantageously situated on a campus overlooking Canterbury city centre, a designated Area of Archaeological Importance that contains Canterbury Roman Museum and the UNESCO world heritage site of Canterbury Cathedral. The Department has long-standing collaborations with Canterbury Archaeological Trust, the Kent Archaeological Society, Canterbury Cathedral Archives, and the Trust for 바카라사이트 Thanet Archaeology.

Just an hour by train from London’s British Museum, Museum of London Archaeology, and British Library, we are well-placed for all your research needs. We are also the UK’s closest university to Europe, and less than two hours away is another capital city, Paris, with its Louvre Museum and Bibliothèque Nationale de France. Our nearness to these world-leading resources, combined with our own excellent laboratory and library collections, form an attractive setting for your research on a dissertation topic. In the summer term, one of our experts will guide you to explore your own interests in a substantial independent research project, using all the skills that you have gained during your 12-month MA.

This is an ideal degree for graduates of Archaeology, Ancient History, Classics, History, or the wider humanities, who want to engage deeply with the ancient Greek and Roman worlds and develop a range of research skills.
