Course Description

Classics - Research

The research programme equips students with the necessary skills in research, academic writing, and the ancient languages, along with any other specialist training required for their particular project. Above all, the Department aims to provide the opportunity for students to pursue their own specific research interests, working independently under the supervision of members of staff who will provide detailed guidance, advice, and feedback on the students work. The primary objective is the production of a substantial contribution to original scholarship in Classics in the form of a thesis.
