Classical & Archaeological Studies operates as a department of the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL), and there are corresponding opportunities for a high level of interdisciplinary interaction (five modern languages, philosophy, theology and religious studies and comparative literature), in addition to the informal links with staff in the rest of the University researching medieval history, the history of science, and social anthropology. We have good partnerships with high-profile universities and organisations such as the Universities of Ghent and Lille 3, the Flemish Heritage Institute, UCLA, the Free University of Amsterdam and the VUB (Brussels).
We offer bursaries to enable students to participate in departmental fieldwork projects for three weeks at a time, covering travel, food and accommodation. Typically, around 30 students each year have been placed on research and training excavations in Britain, Italy (including Ostia, port of Rome) and Greece, relating to sites of Bronze Age Greek (Minoan), Iron Age, Roman, and Late Antique and Anglo-Saxon date.
Programme structure This programme trains you in the issues relating to the contact between the Greek world and the Near East in Classical and Hellenistic periods. You learn to use literary, historical, theological and linguistic approaches to the period in isolation and combination. All students undertake training in Ancient Greek language at a standard appropriate to their level of prior knowledge and the literature of the Eastern Greek world.
The programme then considers areas of religious, historical, literary or scientific interest in detail. You develop a strong appreciation of the mechanics of cultural contact and cultural diversity, as well as engaging with developments in religion, language and science, while building on your research and analytical skills.
A degree in classical studies or a related discipline. A background in ancient Greek language is advantageous, but not required.
