  • Objectives
    This course examines the political, social, economic and cultural history of ancient Greece and Rome. It does not merely handle facts and events, but what lies behind them and what makes them significant and exciting: progress and decline, labour and leisure, revolution and reconciliation, conquest, exploitation and resistance. No previous knowledge of Greek or Latin is required and, except in designated language modules, all texts are read in translation. The study of either Greek or Latin is optional.

    BA Ancient History


    Year one

    You will study two core modules which give you an integrated introduction to the history and culture of Greece and Rome, along with either beginners' Greek or Latin, or Seeing through Language and Working with Language, and an in-depth module on one particular topic (e.g. Alexander). An introduction to the reception of classical culture in the modern world (Classics and Popular Culture) is optional.

    Year two

    This year combines a wide range of optional modules exploring ancient history and society with an extended source study, to prepare you for third year dissertation work; an independent module encourages an innovative (often creative) project on your own choice of subject. You also have the option to continue or start learning Greek or Latin.

    Year three

    You will develop and pursue your own interests through a 10,000 word dissertation on any area of ancient history, and combine this with a Special Subject which involves detailed, in-depth study of a particular topic (taught in seminars). Optional modules, or continued language work, complete the year.
