BA Classical Civilisation
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 an in-depth module on one topic (e.g. Alexander). An introduction to the reception of Classical culture in modern world (Classics and Popular Culture) is optional.
This year combines a wide range of optional modules exploring ancient literature, art and history, with an extended 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.
You will develop and pursue your own interests through a 10,000- word dissertation on any area of classical civilisation, 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.
