O que eu aprenderei?

Overview

This course gives you the opportunity to study the classical world in one of the UK’s largest Classics departments, with a focus on Greek and Latin language and literature. It is an intercollegiate course enabling you to take a wide range of options taught at King’s, UCL and Royal Holloway. You can take advantage of our close links to the Institute of Classical Studies, one of the UK’s best Classics libraries. It leads to further research or careers in education, journalism, finance, politics and cultural sectors.

Course detail

We have organised our MA course in Classics on an intercollegiate basis, so that we can combine the expertise of staff in all three of the participating colleges – King’s, UCL and Royal Holloway. The course centres on the University’s Institute of Classical Studies, which not only maintains a world-class research library, but also hosts the richest programme of seminars, conferences, and occasional lectures for this subject area in the UK. To further add to the breadth of our course, you can also take appropriate modules from other MA courses at King’s. You will study modules through texts in the original languages as well as through translated texts. Besides purely literary and linguistic topics, you can also take modules in Ancient History, Classical Archaeology & Art and Late Antique & Byzantine Studies, including Latin and Ancient Greek at both a beginner’s and intermediate levels. If you are looking to pursue further research in Classics, you are likely to find the unique opportunities to acquire technical skills in the handling of documentary evidence, provided by modules in Greek Papyrology, Greek & Roman Epigraphy, and Greek & Latin Palaeography, particularly valuable.

Teaching and assessment

If you are a full-time student, we will typically provide you with six to eight hours of teaching each week through lectures and seminars, and we will expect you to undertake 35 hours of independent study. If you are a part-time student, we will typically provide you with two to six hours of teaching each week through lectures and seminars, and we will expect you to undertake 17.5 hours of independent study. For your dissertation, we will provide five hours of supervision, and we will expect you to undertake around 575 hours of independent study. Your performance will be assessed through a combination of coursework and written/practical examinations. Forms of assessment may typically include coursework essays, written examinations and individual or group presentations. Coursework contributes approximately 50% and examinations approximately 50% to your final mark.

Career prospects

Many of our graduates use the skills and knowledge they develop with us to pursue further research in our Department, whilst others go on to excel in careers in teaching, journalism, cultural management or the financial sector.
