What will I learn?

This Masters enables you to acquire and develop skills as an independent researcher in the field of Classics and Ancient History. If you have studied Classics at undergraduate level and want to take your studies to a higher level; or if you have a background in other periods of history, philosophy, art or literature and want to develop your studies with reference to the ancient world; this programme is designed for you.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Classics at Glasgow is a world-leading centre for the study of Roman oratory. Our scholars are also current in fields as diverse as religion, historiography, education and late antiquity.
  • We have active research projects on the reception of the classical world from the Middle Ages onwards.
  • You will benefit from access to the University’s well-stocked library, The Hunterian (with its notable fine coin collection), to a major centre in humanities computing, and a dedicated Classics postgraduate study space and library.
  • If you study with us, you will develop a broad range of intellectual and transferable skills. You may also have the opportunity to interact with collaborative research projects in our key areas of activity.

CAREER PROSPECTS

You will develop a broad range of intellectual and transferable skills that employers are looking for. Graduates have found careers in teaching, librarianship and the heritage sector. Over half of our Masters students proceed to PhD. Glasgow PhD graduates currently hold university posts in the UK, Europe, US and Africa.

Positions held by recent graduates include: University Teacher, Business Archive Cataloguer, Policy and Governance Manager, Market Research Coordinator and Underwriter.
