Degrees by Research

Classics at Glasgow has a thriving research culture with resources that are among the best in the UK outside Oxbridge. Staff research interests cover the full range of the discipline, from Homer to Late Antiquity, from Republican politics to modern reception.

There is a varied seminar programme, with contributions from leading Classicists from throughout the UK and beyond. The meetings take place on Tuesdays at 5 pm. We also welcome visiting speakers through meetings held in the department under the auspices of the Classical Association of Scotland and the Scottish Hellenic Society.

In addition to the more formal sessions, there is an ongoing programme of informal, “hands-on” research events over the course of the academic year.

Postgraduate students play a significant part in the life of the department, and are expected to participate fully in the department's programme of events. All three Scottish departments collaborate on improving the student research experience, with annual workshops and conferences.

In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, 75% of the department's research was rated at international standard or above.
