Ancient Narrative Literature, MA
The MA in Ancient Narrative Literature is a dynamic world-first. Its deep exploration of the narrative produced in ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt is informed by globally renowned research expertise.
You will concentrate on fictional and factual ancient narratives in a variety of literary forms. These include the novel, epic poetry, mythology, historiography, and biography. You will also have the chance to begin or continue study of Greek and Latin.
Key concepts of literary and cultural theory will encourage you to investigate ancient texts in creative new ways. As well as ancient literature classics, you will examine less well known texts reflecting stories of ancient people marginalised by gender and social status.
If you plan to undertake further research in this vibrant and rapidly developing area of classical literature, the MA in Ancient Narrative Literature offers excellent preparation.
Singleton Park Campus
Travelling west on the M4 leave the motorway at junction 42 and follow signs for Swansea on the A483 (Fabian Way). On crossing the River Tawe the A483 becomes the A4067. Continue west along this road, passing Sainsbury’s Superstore on the left-hand side of the road. After approximately 1.5 miles there is a footbridge over the road. The University’s main entrance lies just before the footbridge and is controlled by traffic lights. As you approach the lights, keep to the right-hand lane and prepare to turn right into the University. There is a Visitors’ Car Park immediately right of the main entrance. There are large Park-and-Ride sites at Port Tennant and on the A483 east of Swansea, at Landore, on the A4067 north of the city. All sites are open from 7.00 am until 7.00 pm, Monday to Saturday.
