Classics at Edinburgh welcomes graduate students from all over the world. In Classics we can offer you a first-class experience in graduate education and research.
As a graduate student in Classics at Edinburgh, you will be working closely with the seventeen members of Classics’ academic staff. We include specialists in the central areas of Greek and Latin literature and thought, Greek and Roman history, and Classical art and archaeology; but we have a broad view of the discipline, with expertise in (for example) ancient Persia, later antiquity, and reception history.
The Classics Masters can be tailored to suit your interests, whether in literature, history or archaeology. You would have the opportunity to take a variety of seminar-style courses in small groups while developing your research projects in consultation with a team of international experts in Classics.
The hub of intellectual life is the weekly Classics Research Seminar, which welcomes a remarkable range of speakers. The graduate community is intellectually active, supportive, and convivial: graduates organize their own seminar series and conferences.
And besides this, you would be studying in Edinburgh, the Athens of the North, a stunningly beautiful city with a worldwide reputation as a cultural and academic capital!
