Late Antique & Byzantine Studies


Grad Dip


Part Time, Full Time

| Admissions status: Open
The Graduate Diploma is ideal for graduates in unrelated disciplines wishing to pursue graduate-level work in the field of Late Antique & Byzantine Studies. Though it may be taken as a free-standing qualification in its own right, most students take the Graduate Diploma as a preliminary to the MA in Late Antique & Byzantine Studies at King's.


This Graduate Diploma comprises of:

  • Two compulsory modules: at least one in a classical language (normally Greek, but, if you have a good knowledge of Greek, then Latin) and one in Byzantine history.
  • A supporting module chosen to suit your interests and needs, which can be taken from options offered in the Department of Classics or the Department of Theology & Religious Studies. Students may choose to study a further language.
  • A compulsory dissertation.

For progression to the MA in Late Antique & Byzantine Studies, a pass at Merit standard (60 per cent) would be required.
