Course summary

In this course you delve into the literature of Ancient Greece and Rome and the Middle Ages to develop an understanding of these fascinating cultures. You will explore different literary genres (taught in translation), and their wider context in history, art, and society.

This flexible course allows you to pursue your own interests and choose from a wide range of research-led subjects. The wide range of options on offer includes periods of Roman and Greek history, the historical role of women, and the magic, cults and miracles of the Middle Ages.

You can deepen your knowledge of the ancient world through optional Latin and Greek language modules and gain an understanding of the Classical period through hands-on experience with artefacts from the Ure Museum. You can also discover Rome through our unique, award-winning digital model of the city.

Career

Our previous graduates have gone on to a wide variety of careers, including work in accountancy and banking, government and the civil service, law, heritage and museums, teaching, publishing, public sector management, libraries and archives, and media research and production.
