Course Summary

Ancient History is an integrated course for students whose interest in the Greek and Roman worlds is primarily historical. It allows you the opportunity to take either Greek or Latin (or both) at any level including for beginners, though you can study the degree without studying language. As a background to the study of ancient history, you can also take related specialist course units from a range including ancient literature, religion, philosophy, art, archaeology, and modern history. There is a wide range of styles of teaching, including lectures, seminars and small-group tutorials.Flexible Honours may allow you to study an additional arts, languages or cultures subject. The course aims to:- Develop and encourage students' interest in the history and culture of the classical world, by providing a broadly based and challenging curriculum including course-units that are innovative and stimulating, informed by the research expertise of the teaching staff, and examined by a range of methods of assessment; - Train students in the methods and techniques of historical analysis, based on the direct study of primary evidence and taking account of modern approaches and debates; - Help students to work independently and to organise effectively their own schedules of personal study; - Produce graduates with the transferable cognitive skills necessary to equip them for employment, postgraduate study, or further training; - Make available progressive language courses in Latin and/or Greek, starting from elementary, intermediate or advanced level, consolidating any existing knowledge of the language(s) and developing particularly reading knowledge but also some active competence and other language-based and language-related skills. Although language study is not required, all students are encouraged to take a language option, and if successful to continue language study throughout the programme, and thus to follow a `language pathway'.
