Classics (MA)



What will I learn?

The Brock Classics MA program is distinct because of its young, dynamic and engaged faculty. The program emphasizes a holistic approach to the Greek and Roman worlds, encourages the study of languages, literature and history; and assigns prominence to historical context and material culture, especially promoting active archaeological research and travel to the Mediterranean.

There are two schemes for the MA degree: (Scheme A) Course work with major research paper (normally completed in five terms), and (Scheme B) Course work with thesis (normally completed in six terms).

Acceptance into the thesis stream requires explicit departmental agreement that the candidate is prepared to pursue advanced scholarly research, and the preparation of an acceptable thesis proposal.
