  • Degree MSt
  • Study Level Masters
  • Duration 9 months
This nine-month course is designed to allow students a period of study of Greek and/or Latin literature which is both more advanced and more independent than they will be used to from their undergraduate courses, and at the same time more tightly structured and supervised than work for a doctorate. All students will undertake three modular options, one of which must be from lists B or C. Option D is not compulsory. List A comprises a choice of options on genres, authors or groups of texts, e.g historiography, Greek tragedy, comedy, Cicero, Ovid. Students may also propose their own set of texts, subject to approval. List B comprises a range of options on methods and techniques of scholarship, e.g papyrology, palaeography, reception, and textual criticism. List C comprises language options in Ancient Greek and Latin, for those who have not studied both languages to a high level in the course of their first degree. Only one language option may be taken. Language classes are available in Greek and Latin at both elementary and intermediate levels. Option D comprises a dissertation of up to 10,000 words.
