Why choose Classical Civilisation with Heritage at UWTSD? 1. On the Classical Civilisation side we provide the opportunity to study a wide array of topics and themes. You can focus your attention on mythology and religion, literature and art, or social, political and economic history as suits your tastes. While on the Heritage side we offer training in historical research methods and the opportunity to develop relationships with experts in the sector. 2. All students are taught through small groups, with interactive lectures, one-to-one tutorials, and seminars – all in a friendly and supportive environment. 3. Students have the opportunity to go on local and international field trips to places like Athens and Rome. 4. Study visits to national parks, local heritage centres, museums, the National Library of Wales, galleries, Castles and Cathedrals. 5. Staff have teaching and research expertise in a wide array of areas from the poetry of Ovid and Statius to the study of ancient warfare, economics, iconography, and Romano-Celtic religious practices.
The Classical Civilisation side of the scheme allows you to study a wide range of modules covering not only fascinating historical figures like the Athenian statesmen Pericles, well-known military leaders like Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar, as well as historical "boogy-men" like the Emperor Nero – but also the great literary output of these worlds – the Homeric epics, the tragedies, Cicero – as well as basic aspects of everyday life, such as the role of women, religion, warfare and the economy. The Heritage side of the programme offers an innovative approach to study that combines an exploration of general and broadly based Heritage issues, with more specialist or particular aspects of the field. The programme will equip students with an understanding and appreciation of the wider field of Heritage.
A wide range of assessment methods are utilised. In addition to traditional gobbet work, essays and in class tests, you will be assessed through bibliographic exercises, presentations – oral and PowerPoint based, at both individual and group level – creation of abstracts, reflective reports, in-house conference papers, article reviews, take-home exams, group wikis, creation of project plans and, of course, the dissertation. This variety of assessment helps develop skills in presenting material in a clear, professional and lucid manner, whether orally or in writing.
