The final module will comprise your dissertation (16,000–18,000 words) which will be the culmination of the degree. The assessment exercises are carefully designed to reflect the learning curve of the degree, taken as a whole. Career impact Studying an MA in Classical Studies at the OU is challenging but fun.
