About this program

Classical Studies - MPhil/PhD

Lincoln's doctoral Program in Classical Studies offers interested students advanced research opportunities in ancient Greek and Roman history and Greek and Latin languages, literatures, and cultures. It is designed to prepare students to embark on careers in fields including academia, teaching, the heritage sector, and the civil service.

Research students can benefit from a broad range of expertise offered by our Classical Studies staff, across both local and global contexts, including in Lincoln itself, Britain, Iberia, the Mediterranean world, and the ancient Near East.

The School of Heritage and Humanities brings together academics, archivists, librarians, postgraduate students, and researchers with interdisciplinary interests in both Ancient History/Classics and the subsequent interpretation and representation of the Classical past. We also have a strong relationship with the wider scholarly and professional community.
