For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via This two-year MPhil is the course taken by the majority of master's students in Ancient History. It is an intensive research training degree designed to equip you with a range of both knowledge and skills in Greek and/or Roman history; but it will prove stimulating and enjoyable for those whose aim is simply to deepen their understanding of current debates and developments in Ancient History. For the MPhil you will produce a thesis of up to 25,000 words, two pieces of work based on graduate seminars run by members of the faculty in Greek and Roman History, and three further options. One of these options is a language. Competence in ancient Greek and/or Latin being a requirement for doctoral work in Ancient History, many MPhil students choose one of these languages as their linguistic option: both are available at Elementary and Intermediate level. For those whose Greek and Latin are already serviceable, there is an opportunity to acquire one of the principal languages of scholarship in Ancient History, French, Italian, or German; or to lay foundations in another ancient language relevant to their interests, such as Hebrew, Aramaic or Coptic. Language teaching is provided in the form of classes and/or individual or small-group tutorials. All the linguistic options are assessed by a three-hour written examination, taken at the end of the first or second year. One of the other options is drawn from a list of subjects based on Methods and techniques of scholarship, such as Greek or Roman Numismatics, Greek or Roman Epigraphy, and Documentary Papyrology. The other is chosen from a second list of topics on specific historical periods or themes, among which are Greek history ca 650â??479 BCE; Athenian Democracy in the Classical Age; Alexander the Great and his successors 336â??301 BCE; Roman history 146 BCâ??46 BCE; Roman history 138â??312 CE; The economy of the Roman Empire; The provinces of the Roman Empire; Greek and/or Roman religions; Greek and/or Latin historiography; The world of Augustine; and The City of Rome (this option is taught in Rome, and involves attendance at the residential course organised by the School annually in Rome, with intensive exploration of the sites and museums of the city (only those accepted by the School may take the option). Finally, some students take advantage of a provision by which you and your supervisor can develop a customised option in a field of ancient history specifically relevant to your needs and interests. (For the whole, much more extensive, list, see the Graduate Handbook). Teaching of these options will be provided through classes, seminars or tutorials as appropriate. All the options are assessed by a pair of pre-submitted essays: those on the compulsory seminar are submitted at the end of the first year, and oral feedback provided; those on the other options may be submitted at the end of the first or second year. The dissertation is submitted at the end of the second year.
