About

The DPhil in Classical Archaeology at the University of Oxford provides you with the opportunity to pursue substantial independent research from within a wide range of periods and subjects, ranging from the prehistoric Aegean through the Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods to Byzantium.

Overview

The DPhil in Classical Archaeology from the University of Oxford is a full-time degree that is examined only by thesis and there is no formal course of instruction. 

Features 

  • Instead, students develop their own topic under the guidance of their supervisors, who are experts in their field of research. 
  • There is also the possibility to develop projects which cross disciplinary boundaries, for example in ancient history or archaeological science as appropriate.

Programme Structure

Curriculum:

  • You will be encouraged to attend lectures and participate in research seminars, particularly the numerous and wide-ranging weekly seminar series organised within the cutting-edge Historical and Classical Research Group. 
  • These also often provide opportunities for research students to present their own work.  
  • The department strongly encourages fieldwork and there are often opportunities for joining fieldwork in relation to projects led by academic staff.
