MA in Ancient History with a Term in Rome
Focusing on Rome and the cities of the Roman Empire, Kent’s exciting new taught MA programmes in Ancient History allows you to spend your academic year in two great locations: Canterbury and Rome. You study the monuments and artefacts of ancient Rome at first hand, visiting relevant sites and museums, with options to study site conservation and museum presentation as well as the history of the city.
This unique MA is designed for students who wish to adopt a twin-tracked approach to the past by using both historical sources and archaeological evidence. The focus of the MA is on research training in preparation for further study for a PhD or for a career outside academia that require research skills. A key focus of the programme is on the cities of the Roman Empire, including the capital – Rome. There is also the possibility of specialising in the study of Age, Gender and Ethnicity, as well as taking modules in the wider history and archaeology of the Roman period.
