Course description

As a result of the sweeping changes to PGT funding already implemented for English domiciled students and now proposed for Welsh domiciled students, the College of Arts and Humanities at Swansea University is bringing the Centenary Graduate Scholarship awards to a close. The scheme will continue to operate as was advertised for students who enrolled on undergraduate schemes up to and including September 2016. The College intends to promote full details of future PGT funding sources to all students as soon as government policy becomes legislation. We have a wide range of employability opportunities that enhance the career prospects for our students. We offer a semester abroad in Hong Kong. We have credit bearing work placements and also volunteer programmes, such as the Schools Literacy scheme where our students go into local primary schools to teach literacy skills to pupils. All students in the College have a personal tutor who provides academic and pastoral support.

Modules

Classic civilisation Year 1: Greek and Roman history; Greek and Roman literature; Greek and Roman archaeology. Years 2-3: Athenian democracy; tragedy; Philip and Alexander; Roman republican history; imperial history; epic; historiography; love poetry; Greek art; Roman urban life; Greek women; magic and witchcraft; science and technology; Greek and/or Latin language. Latin modules are also included.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Very few students study this subject, so there isn't a lot of information available on what graduates do when they finish - so bear that in mind when you look at any stats. It's a good idea to speak to tutors on university open days to find out what previous graduates went on to do.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Around 1,150 graduates received classics degrees in 2012 and more than a quarter of those went on to further study, usually a Masters, and often in a different subject such as law, history or archaeology. Those who did go into work tended to find jobs in London or the South East, and be working in education, marketing and advertising or the finance industry. Personal contacts were particularly important for these graduates in finding their first job, so good networks may help your job search when the time comes.
