Postgraduate taught courses
The MLitt in Classics is one year full-time or two years part-time. There is also the option of a taught MRes in Classics, which combines taught courses with a larger independent research component. The MLitt is ideal for those wishing to deepen their understanding of the discipline, or to convert from another discipline to a research programme in Classics. It offers dedicated pathways in ancient drama and archaeology. The MRes can be tailored to more individual research interests. Both programmes offer the opportunity to begin or continue the study of Latin or Greek. This is particularly useful for those considering continuing to a PhD.
Classics has been central to the University of Glasgow since its foundation in 1451 and has a vibrant present. Current research specialisms include drama, historiography, politics, Augustan poetry and reception. Classics is also home to an ERC project on Roman Republican Oratory.
