Our MA in Ancient Greek History and Archaeology is designed for students who wish to adopt a twin-tracked approach to the past by using both historical and archaeological evidence. It enables you to develop an advanced understanding of ancient culture, whether you focus on literature, critical thought, art, architecture or religion.

Fantastic resources

In Athens you have access to outstanding research libraries including:

  • the Alba Library and the John S. Bailey Library at the American College of Greece
  • the British School at Athens, which holds a large collection of archaeological books, rare archival materials and collections.

You may also choose to register with the renowned Library of the Archaeological Society in Athens.  

You can continue to access the digital resources including topical books and journals of Kent's Templeman Library in Canterbury. 

Academic and professional outcomes

We include much scope for vocational training, skills acquisition and guided project work, often with use of our extensive facilities. These aspects of our programmes have been praised by external assessors.

Recent Kent graduates who studied in Athens have progressed to careers in a wide range of related professional and leadership areas, including national and local museums, teaching and senior roles with archaeological organisations (national government institutions, contracting units and trusts). A large proportion of completing Master’s students have progressed onto PhD study.
