About

Overview

To this end, the Classics programme from Maynooth University seeks to equip students with the necessary skills in research, academic writing, and the ancient languages, along with any other specialist training required for their particular project. Above all, the Department aims to provide the opportunity for students to pursue their own specific research interests, working independently under the supervision of members of staff who will provide detailed guidance, advice, and feedback on the students' work. The primary objective is the production of a substantial contribution to original scholarship in Classics in the form of a thesis.  

Over the course of the Structured PhD programme students will acquire the habit of independent study and research, along with the capacity to express their ideas effectively and to build upon (and assign due credit to) the research of others.  By the end of the programme, they will also have acquired the necessary linguistic and technical competences to be able to engage at an appropriate level with professional scholars.

  • Applicants for the PhD in Classics are normally expected to have achieved a first-class or high upper-second-class result at the MA level; occasionally an appropriately qualified student may be admitted directly to the PhD from an undergraduate degree. Except in exceptional circumstances, no applicant will be admitted to the PhD without a prior knowledge of Greek or Latin at a level deemed appropriate.
  • Applicants must have a qualification at least equivalent to an upper-second-class pass in the 200-level course in Greek or Latin (as appropriate), and an appropriate number of modules at the 300-level in the same language, or equivalent, must be passed before the degree can be awarded.
Applicants must have a recognised primary degree which is considered equivalent to Irish university primary degree level.
