MA in Visual and Material Culture of Ancient Greece

Standard Duration: 1 year full-time; 2 years part-time

This course enables you to apply the study of ancient material and visual culture to a particular historical and geographical context. You’ll undertake specialist research training in art, numismatics and epigraphy that will equip you for further PhD study in these fields, or for a career in museum work or education.

The Greek MA is the first in the UK to give you access to the postgraduate training courses of the British School at Athens, an institute for advanced research based in Greece.

You will have the opportunity to spend two to three weeks in Athens or Knossos, following a full
programme of site visits and seminars from visiting scholars.
