Course Description

Classics (M.Phil. / P.Grad.Dip.)

Aimed at students who intend to proceed to doctoral research and those who wish to round off their undergraduate studies by taking their encounter with the Classical world to the next level or to explore a nascent interest in ancient Greece and Rome, the M.Phil. in Classics offers a range of taught modules at high level and the opportunity to write a dissertation on a subject of your choice.

The course provides students with an excellent grounding in postgraduate research skills in Classics. It also hones the sort of analytical, written, and verbal communication skills highly valued and effective in careers outside the university and education sectors. Since its establishment in 2008, the M.Phil. in Classics has attracted students from all over the world. Many have gone on to doctoral studies in Trinity College and other universities internationally.
