Some 94% of graduates are employed or in further study 6 months after graduating (Destination of Leavers from HE survey 2015) and 70% of our students achieved a 1st class or 2.1 honours degree in 2017/18.An intellectually rigorous programme, this degree is built around compulsory and optional modules. Your initial studies will focus on Greek mythology, languages and ancient philosophy.
