The Higher Diploma in Classical Studies is an entry-level postgraduate option for applicants who already hold a BA or comparable degree, and who wish to add Classical Studies to their list of qualifications. This is a degree that offers a wide-ranging and balanced education in many aspects of the ancient civilizations and their aftermath, with modules on ancient mythology, literature, history, and philosophy as well as the modern reception of the Classical legacy. The programme can be a precursor to the MA in Classical Studies or a stand-alone programme for applicants who hold an undergraduate qualification in another subject and now wish to study Classics.
