Overview

Classical Studies explores the civilisation of ancient Greece and Rome, and its legacy that has fundamentally shaped all later civilisations including that of today.

Programme structure

Students may wish to pursue the three year BA (Hons) Classical Studies pathway or the four year MClass (Hons) Classical Studies pathway.

Study begins by establishing a framework of Classical history, both chronologically and geographically. It introduces Classical archaeology, art and architecture (for example temples, sculpture and inscriptions); Classical drama (comedy and tragedy); literature
(epics and lyrics); and philosophy (Socrates and Plato). It explores the nature of each discipline and how each is best studied as the foundation for the rest of the degree. Classical languages are introduced in Year 2.

Students take a range of modules in Years 2, 3 and 4 such as Civilisation, Theme, Depth and Comparative Studies that further develop understanding of the Classical world.

Theme Studies explore continuity and change in the Roman household or depictions in film. Civilisation Studies explore one sub-period (for example, Fifth Century Athens) in the round, covering mythology and drama, democracy and war.

Students take two Depth Studies that establish a comprehensive knowledge of a particular period through primary and secondary sources. It is the Comparative Studies that particularly explore the Classical legacy in art and literature in subsequent centuries.

The two culminations of the degree are the dissertation in Year 3 and the summative paper paving the way for more advanced research in Year 4.
