Postgraduate study in Classics

The Department of Classics offers 3 postgraduate qualifications that follow on closely from the BA degree:

Students who have completed a BA with a major in Classics may qualify to go on in their fourth year to pursue a BA(Hons) degree or a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts. The course is the same for both, but the latter may be taken part-time. Students who have completed a degree in another discipline may apply for a Diploma for Graduates in Classics to help make the transition to postgraduate study in Classics.

These qualifications provide advanced training in Classics and an opportunity to conduct independent research. They thus form an excellent basis for advanced postgraduate study at the MA and PhD levels. The skills developed in pursuing these qualifications should also secure you an advantage in a competitive job market and enhance your employment prospects.
