Taught MA in Ancient Literature and Thought opens in a new window 

This MA will foster your ability to read a wide range of Greek and/or Latin texts in the original language and to develop nuanced understanding of the methodologies and critical approaches to the study of these texts within their historical, cultural and political contexts, very broadly considered. It provides an intensive introduction to literary theory tailored specifically to classicists, making it a unique pathway in the UK for classicists contemplating going on to a doctorate, and harnesses Warwick's strong interdisciplinary links between its departments of Classics and Ancient History, English and Comparative Literary Studies, and Philosophy.
Taught MA in Ancient Visual and Material Culture opens in a new window 

The taught MA courses provide an overview of the scope of the visual and material culture of the ancient world, the ways in which it might be studied, and the questions that can be asked of it. The core module gives you an awareness of historiography and methodological issues affecting the study of the material culture of the ancient world as well as inviting you to consider the ways in which its study can contribute to our picture of antiquity. Optional modules allow you to develop your interests in particular aspects of the subject (art, epigraphy, numismatics, or an approved external option) in more depth, while a core language component (in ancient Greek, Latin or a modern language) provides the linguistic skills necessary to conduct further research. There are options to undertake study at the British School in Rome (the Taught MA in Ancient Visual and Material Culture of Ancient Rome, opens in a new window) or the British School at Athens (the Taught MA in Ancient Visual and Material Culture of Ancient Greece, opens in a new window) (these options are subject to acceptance by the BSR/BSA).
We also offer an MA by research which has two different pathways. opens in a new window
