The Ancient History MA enables students to study Greek, Roman and near-Eastern history at an advanced level. Students will also learn and refine the techniques and skills needed to be able to analyse and interpret a variety of historical sources. This is an intercollegiate course that draws on the strengths of King’s, UCL and Royal Holloway and the Institute of Classical Studies. The course consists of a required module, Sources & Methods in Ancient History, two to four optional modules and a dissertation. The first and last of these will provide students with concentrated training in research techniques and methodology. Students will also study texts in the original languages as well as in translation. Besides purely ancient historical topics, students may also take modules from the master’s courses in Classics, Classical Archaeology & Art, and Late Antique & Byzantine Studies.
