  • Objectives
    To develop an approach to the study of the Classical Mediterranean that takes a critical perspective upon the long history of the investigation of its textual and material remains (its landscapes, buildings, art, inscriptions coins, and other archaeological finds) and that engages with current debates in ancient history and historical archaeology. This degree has a series of specific goals, namely: - to provide students with a high level of competence in the cultures of the Greek, Hellenistic and Roman Mediterranean, by exploring chosen specialist subjects - to develop students’ methodological expertise in critical use of source materials - to familiarise them with current theoretical approaches used in Greek and Roman studies and to enable them to reflect critically on the potential of these - to enable them to reflect critically on the economic, social, political, cultural, artistic, and religious developments and interaction between the various regions and powers of the Classical Mediterranean - to develop students’ ability to conduct independent research - to build their awareness of the potential of interdisciplinary research - to enhance the career prospects of students, whether in archaeology, related or other professions, especially by equipping them with transferable skills (in written and oral communication, team-working, numeracy, and IT) - to equip those who desire it to advance to research degrees with the skills they will need.
