During the final year of my undergraduate degree in Ancient History and Classical Archaeology at Warwick, I realised that not only did I not want to leave the university I had grown to love, but also there was still so much of the Classical world I wished to explore.
The art and architecture of the ancient world had always been my favourite element of the Classical world, so when the MA in Ancient Visual and Material Culture was introduced I jumped at the opportunity to learn more about the great monuments and artistic achievements of ancient Greece and Rome.
Having been accepted onto the MA I chose to study the optional modules of Ancient Numismatics, The Art of the Ancient World, Latin Language and Literature in addition to the compulsory Approaching Ancient Visual and Material Culture module and the Dissertation (Greek Temple Sculpture).
I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about ancient art at a more intensive level. Despite being challenging at times, it was a different experience to my undergraduate degree, and I feel has equipped me to face challenges in the work place, enhancing skills obtained at an undergraduate level. I am now hoping to enter a career in teaching.
