Postgraduate taught degrees

Our MSc programmes in Classics & Ancient History and Ancient Cultures are one year full-time or two years part-time. Classics is ideal for those wishing to deepen their understanding of the discipline, or to convert from another discipline to a research programme in Classics. Ancient Cultures enables you to explore the ancient world from an interdisciplinary perspective, with input from Classics, Archaeology, Celtic and Gaelic, and Theology and Religious Studies. 

There is also the option of a taught MRes in Classics, which combines taught courses with a larger independent research component. The MRes can be tailored to more individual research interests.

Both the MSc and MRes 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.
