The M.Phil. in Classics is designed both for those who are already fully trained in the Classical languages, and for those who have completed non-language based degrees.
It has two main aims:
* to provide students with a grounding in postgraduate research and learning essential for progression to the Ph.D. register; and
* to hone the sort of analytical, written, and verbal communication skills that are highly valued and effective in careers outside the university and education sectors.
While the core courses communicate basic skills and knowledge of the main strands of Classical scholarship, the taught courses and dissertation offer students the opportunity to begin to specialise in a particular strand, whether literary, philosophical, historical or archaeological.
This is a full-time course based on a combination of assigned coursework, assessed in a variety of ways, and a dissertation.
Three modules are compulsory:
* Classics research skills
* Generic research skills
All students will select an additional four modules from the following pool (or another two modules if they take either Greek or Latin Language for beginners)
* Greek Language for beginners
* Latin Language for beginners
* The Eternal City: the archaeology of the city of Rome (Dr Dodge)
* Classics and European Identity (Professor Chahoud)
* Gender and Genre in Augustan Poetry (Professor Gale)
* Ethnicity in the Ancient World (Dr Cuypers)
* Lost in the Labyrinth? `Reading´ Aegean Bronze Age Art (Dr Morris)
* The Ancient Economy (Dr Taylor)
* Curiosity and Crisis in the Late Fifth Century: receptions of the Sophists (Dr Clements)
* Rulers and Image-making in the Hellenistic World (Professor McGing)
Students may apply to take directed reading modules outside these listed taught courses; or an approved module from another M.Phil. programme. Directed reading modules will be available in a wide range of Greek and Latin authors, and of topics in Greek and Roman archaeology and culture. The availability of particular modules will depend on staffing demands.
Applicants will normally be expected to have a first or upper second class Honors degree 2.1 (or equivalent e.g. GPA of 3.5) in a relevant area. Applicants may be asked for examples of recent written work. Knowledge of Greek or Latin is not required, but students hoping later to pursue a research degree in fields where the written record provides our main sources, will be strongly encouraged to acquire language skills.
