The Department of Classical & Archaeological Studies offers taught MA programmes and a research programmes. We offer taught MA programmes that are fully based in Canterbury and programmes that include a term at Kent's centre in Rome as well as a 18-month programme at our centre in Athens. All of these MAs are designed to provide a platform suitable for progression to research studies (i.e. MPhil/PhD), as well as professional/vocational development and training, and are designed to cater for the broad range of interests prospective students are likely to have at this level. Our staff are active researchers with wide expertise in the Ancient World. Our department is part of the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL) and our staff collaborate with experts from other departments within the School.
If you are thinking of embarking upon a research degree, please contact a staff member with appropriate expertise in your chosen field of interest. For general enquiries please contact Professor Ray Laurence (research) and Dr Dunstan Lowe (taught) who are the Directors of Postgraduate Studies.
