MSc in Classics at The University of Edinburgh gives you the chance to develop your interest in classics across the entire discipline: Greek and Latin literature and thought, Greek and Roman history, and classical art and archaeology.
You’ll have the opportunity to study specific periods and regions of classical civilisation, analyse the literary significance of texts, and develop your language skills in Greek and Latin.
Drawing on the diverse interests of our academic staff, the programme content is highly flexible, allowing you to choose a specialised path or a more interdisciplinary approach.
We’ll also provide you with opportunities to hear from distinguished speakers in the weekly classics research seminar series and to share your research with your peers at the classics graduate seminar.

The modular structure of the programme allows you to concentrate on areas of particular interest while still providing breadth of coverage.
There is one required training course in ‘Classical Research Methods and Skills’ that runs across the two teaching semesters. This course is specially designed for classicists and aims to introduce you to areas of the discipline beyond your own specialities and to help you with the practical skills of finding and presenting information. In addition, students will choose five courses from a list of options. These enable you to work with increasing independence on advanced scholarship and prepare for the final stage of the Masters, the dissertation. Greek and Latin language courses will be offered every year, as will a number of Latin and Greek text seminars and core Ancient History and Classical Archaeology courses. In previous years these have included courses on:
A UK 2:1 degree, or its international equivalent, in a relevant discipline.
