Research degrees in Classics

Doctoral research supervision is available in broad areas of classics and ancient history including:

  • The Economy of the Roman Empire
  • Roman Religion
  • Ancient Literacy and the Ancient Book
  • Cultural Identity in the Ancient World
  • Digital Classics

To make an application for a research degree, speak first to the manager of the Institute of Classical Studies. Your particular research interest may be able to be supported, even though it is not listed.

It is possible to arrange co-supervision with particular experts in the Colleges of the University of London, and, on occasion, with experts from institutions outside the University of London (e.g. the British Library, the British Museum, or other higher education institutions). In cases where it is more appropriate for MPhil/PhD students to be registered at a College of the University, the Institute is happy to offer informal advice.
