University of Wales - Swansea
University of Wales Swansea
The Department of Classics, Ancient History and Egyptology is the largest in Wales, and can provide expertise touching on most aspects of the classical world, and in Egyptology. The Department was awarded the grade of 4A in the 2001 national Research Assessment Exercise. The MA Classics is seminar-based and constructed in four modules running between October and June, concentrating on study techniques employed in ancient history, classical culture and Egyptology. The schemes are designed to be flexible, and can, within limits, be tailored to meet the needs or interests of individual students. Modules deal with literary text; documentary evidence, especially inscriptions; archaeological evidence; and the study of sexuality, religion and society. There will also be specific instruction in research techniques. Students are required to study Greek or Latin, or Ancient Egyptian at an appropriate level.
