Study the classical world of Greece and Rome through a variety of disciplines. You will be encouraged to study broadly across the field of classical antiquity, defined as the Greco-Roman world from the Aegean Bronze Age (3rd millennium BC) to the transition from late antiquity to the early medieval period (500 AD). You will have the opportunity to specialise within this large subject but will emerge with a general understanding across the whole period. As part of this degree you will learn at least one of the classical languages (Ancient Greek or Latin) and study ancient history, literature and culture. There are also opportunities to study other disciplines such as archaeology or art history.
You will be encouraged to take part in an overseas study course in Italy, Greece or Turkey. You will experience the classical world and visit archaeological sites and key museums, all as part of an approved course counting towards your degree.
Students can undertake an honours year. There are also many opportunities for postgraduate study including coursework and research.
Graduates may find work in teaching, historical societies, translation, public service, trade, tourism, museums and many other fields.
