MA in Visual and Material Culture of Ancient Rome

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.

You will participate in the British School at Rome’s ‘City of Rome’ postgraduate course, a two-month residential programme. This involves a busy schedule of expert presentations and onsite seminars. Admission to the courses in Greece and Rome is subject to the discretion of the BSA/BSR and cannot be guaranteed.
