Classics Research programme at King's College London has a strong record of attracting major research grants. The Department has recently received funding from the AHRC, the British Academy and the Leverhulme Trust for major projects including Digitising the Prosopography of the Roman Republic, The Art of Making in Antiquity: Stone Carving and Carvers in the Roman World, Ancient Inscriptions of the Black Sea Region, and Classics & Class.
Other areas of activity we have been developing include Neo Latin, Roman mosaics and mosaicists, ancient religion, and Greek theatre and performance. We have successful ongoing research projects in collaboration with the College's Department of Digital Humanities and the British Museum. We work with the Faculty of Arts & Humanities’ Centre for Hellenic Studies, which combines the resources of Classics and Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies in organising major public lectures by leading scholars (the Runciman Lecture, the Greek Archaeological Committee Lecture) and biennial international conferences (recent topics include Lord Byron and Ancient Greek Theatre in the Black Sea).

Programme StructureCourse study environment
- You will work mainly with your principal supervisor, who will read and discuss your work with you on a regular basis, advise you about attendance at seminars and direct you to any training opportunities. You will also have a second supervisor who will be able to advise you on particular aspects of your research.
- The department attaches great importance to the identification of training needs, and will direct you individually to courses we think will support your research. These are organised through the London Arts & Humanities Partnership, an AHRC-funded Doctoral Training Centre bringing together King’s UCL and the School of Advanced Study in Senate House.
