Program description

On MA Greek Studies, you will study ancient Greek language and literature, along with courses that place it in its wider context in the ancient Greek, Roman and Byzantine world. Ancient Greek is the language in which many of the basic concepts underlying western society to this day have found expression for the first time; and ancient Greek culture and thought are at the root of many strands of modern thinking in Europe and beyond. On this programme you receive an advanced and robust training in ancient Greek, and read a broad selection of works of classical literature in the original. You will have the opportunity to read texts from archaic Greece down to late antiquity and Byzantium in various contexts - political, religious and philosophical - as well as to take other courses on the history and culture of the Greek-speaking world.
