SECL postgraduate studies
SECL offers a range of programmes at postgraduate level.
We offer a varied choice of taught MA programmes in Ancient History, Archaeology, Comparative Literature, French, German, Hispanic Studies, Italian, Linguistics, Modern European Literature, Philosophy, Reasoning, and Religion. These typically entail attendance of modules rated in credits plus the writing of a dissertation. If taken full-time, you study between September and May/June and write your dissertation during the summer. If you take them part-time, you follow taught modules over two years (September to May/June) and write your dissertation during the summer of your second year.
We also have taught MA programmes that offer terms at Kent's Paris School of Arts and Culture (Montparnasse) and at Kent's Rome School of Classical and Renaissance Studies at the American University of Rome (Monteverde). The MA in Heritage Management is taught entirely in Athens (Eleusis).
For more information, please see the full list of our taught MAs.

We offer PhD (3 years full-time / 5 years part-time) programmes in Classical & Archaeological Studies, Comparative Literature, French, German, German and Comparative Literature, Italian, Hispanic Studies, Linguistics, Philosophy, and Theology and Religious Studies. Together with the Faculty of Humanities, our School offers you training opportunities throughout.
