Course summary

Students on this flexible three-year programme may choose from a vast range of modules covering ancient history, literature, languages and archaeology. It offers great flexibility in the possible combination of modules and provides an entry to the classics for those who have not studied Greek or Latin at school.

Your learning

You will be taught through lectures, seminars and small-group work. Some sessions involve direct study of artefacts, including access to the collections of the British Museum.

Assessment

Most modules combine both continuous assessment and end-of-year written examinations, although a few modules are assessed solely by one or other of these methods.

Careers

Knowledge of languages such as Latin and Greek may allow you to develop mental agility and versatility, equipping you with the ability (amongst other things) to learn modern languages with comparative ease, opening a wider range of possibilities in the future.

The Ancient World BA is a rigorous and broad-ranging degree which qualifies you for a remarkably wide variety of jobs. The Classical Society hosts regular talks from former students, which may help guide you in your future career choices.

Career destinations in recent years have included: graduate study, teaching, law, computing, accountancy, marketing, banking, music (classical and popular), acting, the media, business, the voluntary sector, local government and politics.
