This course examines the cultural, economic, political, and social history of ancient Greece and Rome (c.1200 BCE – 500 CE). It offers a wide range of optional modules as the course progresses, so you can pursue your particular interests; these cover the department’s areas of special expertise in ancient literature, history and art, and you can also choose to study Greek or Latin language modules. No prior knowledge is assumed. Our excellent facilities include library resources, an on-campus museum and the Digital Humanities Centre where you can use state-of-the-art technology such as scanning equipment to enhance your understanding of ancient artefacts.
In year one, you’ll study two core survey modules which give you an integrated introduction to the history and culture of Greece and Rome and their reception, along with three modules going into more depth on methods, sources and approaches in the areas of history, literature or art. You are encouraged to study Latin or ancient Greek. Your second year involves an extended study of an ancient source and of an aspect of the history of Classics as a discipline, plus a wide range of optional modules exploring ancient culture and society. Many students choose our innovative independent second-year project, on a topic of their choice. In your final year, you’ll pursue your own interests through a 10,000-word dissertation on any area of classical culture, and take a seminar-based module on a topic reflecting one of the lecturers’ research specialism. Optional modules, including language courses, complete the year.
