We offer a distinctive and rewarding postgraduate experience across the range of disciplines for students wanting the extra year of in-depth study or for those transitioning to research.

Our postgraduate taught programmes offer our local research and teaching expertise and offer access to the rich learning resources of the University of London.

All our programmes draw on our rich departmental research. You will be taught by experts in the field, engaged with their own research interests. They will broaden your perspectives, deepen your knowledge, and provide you with skills and experience that you can take into later life. 

Our masters programmes offer: 

  • subject specific skills in key disciplinary areas
  • skills in research 
  • skills in dealing with complex problems
  • skills in analysis
  • skills in presenting complex research

We offer five Masters programmes.

Three of these are taught within a consortium with King's College London, the Institute of Classical Studies, and UCL. These are: 

These are fully integrated offerings in which students from any of the partners can access courses in the other institutions. See here for details on the intercollegiate modules available. 

We also offer two 'in house' research masters, taught through our research centres, The Centre for Oratory and Rhetoric and the Centre for the Reception of Greece and Rome
