  • Objectives
    This programme offers students an opportunity to combine the study of ancient history, art and society through texts in translation with History of Art and Architecture. In Ancient History students will examine the history, art and culture of the Greek and Roman worlds. In History of Art and Architecture you will gain the analytical and descriptive skills to understand the meaning and significance of the visual arts.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
