The Reception of the Classical World MA investigates the interactions of later ages with the cultures of the ancient world across a variety of media, making extensive use of London's unique resources of literary, historical and artistic study and research. The programme attracts European students and other students from overseas as well as the UK. Students gain a thorough grounding in the key figures, narratives, art forms, concepts, and social, religious and political practices of the classical world that have been most put to use by later cultures. The programme equips them with the tools necessary for research, including training in the use of digital resources online, library catalogues and archives.Careers

Some students go on to pursue research at UCL or in other institutions.
