Programme structure

In Year One of this degree, a group of core modules provides you with a solid introduction to the breadth of Greco-Roman society and culture, and helps to develop the skills you will require for later in-depth study. The remaining half of the programme is drawn from options in Ancient History, Classical Archaeology, Greek, and Latin.

In Year Two you will study aspects of Greek and Roman literature, art, language, intellectual culture, and modern receptions of the ancient world more exhaustively. Core modules cover broad and key topics in Greek and Roman culture and society and use a wide range of types of evidence. Optional modules allow you to analyse ancient texts in translation, or focus on epochal events and political actors in ancient history.

In Year Three, modules centre on key figures, genres, and themes continue the development of skills, depth, and focus. In particular, your dissertation will give you the opportunity to undertake detailed and independent research. You will have an expert adviser who will help you define the topic and give advice on useful directions to take, but the subject matter itself will be your own choice.

Throughout the degree you may complement your classical studies with modules in ancient history, and ancient language.
