Course summary

Greek and Latin (Postgraduate Diploma) provide a self-contained period of structured but challenging study for anyone who wishes to pursue their interest in both the Greek and Latin languages.

This programme focuses exclusively on the aquisition and/or development of the Ancient Greek and Latin languages. Our language teaching system is split into different levels, allowing students to study each language from beginner level right up to advanced.

Each year two texts/authors are chosed for each language; one text is prose, the other is verse. The texts and authors change each year and you will have the opportunity to read both canonical and non-canonical authors.

Course Overview

These programmes offer students the opportunity to focus on the acquisition and/or development of both Greek and Latin and can be started at beginners, intermediate or advanced level depending on their linguistic ability.

The PGDip is a postgraduate degree comprised of 120 credits (six taught modules) of postgraduate study. Students are normally expected to complete the programme over a period no longer than two years, taking 80 credits in the first year of the programme and 40 credits in the second year.

Assessment

Our language degrees in Greek and Latin involve a wide range of assessment methods. In addition to traditional essays and exams, you will be assessed through commentaries and in-class tests. This variety of assessment helps develop skills in presenting material in clear, professional and a lucid manner, whether orally or in writing.

Career Opportunities

The programme provides a strong foundation for postgraduate work, by laying particular stress on the languages.

The course also provides a professional qualification for teachers or others seeking Continuing Professional Development.
