Postgraduate taught degrees

Classics has been central to the University of Glasgow since its foundation in 1451 and today has a vibrant research community.

Classics at Glasgow is a world-leading centre for the study of Roman oratory. Our scholars are also current in fields as diverse as religion, historiography, comedy, science, technology, medicine, warfare and late antiquity.

We have active research projects on the reception of the classical world from the Middle Ages onwards. In addition, there is the opportunity to begin or continue Ancient Greek, Latin or Egyptian hieroglyphs.

You will benefit from access to the University’s well-stocked library, the University’s museum and art gallery: The Hunterian (with its notable fine coin collection), to a major centre in humanities computing, and a dedicated Classics postgraduate study space and library.

If you study with us, you will develop a broad range of intellectual and transferable skills. You may also have the opportunity to interact with collaborative research projects in our key areas of activity

Our Masters programmes offer the opportunity to develop in-depth understanding of the discipline, engage with our University Collections, and study a language from beginner level.
