The PhD and MPhil programmes provide the chance to work with an expert in your subject area in order to develop a substantial research project that results in a significant dissertation (PhD: 80,000 word; MPhil: 40,000). Typically, applicants for these programmes will already have undertaken postgraduate study. These degrees have no taught components, but relevant taught modules may be attended by arrangement to develop appropriate research skills (including the study of ancient languages or technical/professional skills).
We encourage you to attend conferences on subjects related to your research interests (financial support is available for research students expenses), and to participate in our lively interdisciplinary seminar series (some of which are run by our postgraduates).
We enable advanced research students to broaden their skills through appropriate training in teaching skills and, where possible, through offering the chance to gain experience in teaching. In addition, our annual postgraduate colloquia provide training in oral presentation skills and the professional dissemination of research within an interdisciplinary environment. For research degree applications, we encourage you to contact potential supervisors in advance of applying.
Interdisciplinary research groups are currently working on topics including:
* The City in Antiquity
* Culture of the Everyday (including study of childhood, the life course, forensic and funerary archaeology, and religion)
* The Eastern Mediterranean from Late Antiquity to the Modern Day
* Landscape and Human Environment (including palaeoecology and palaeobiology)
