Why study Ancient Civilisations at UWTSD Lampeter? 1. We offer small class sizes allowing for excellent interaction and discussion, as well as unsurpassed support from the tutors – the kind which simply cannot be achieved in big lecture halls full of students. 2. We are one of the few universities across the UK to offer students the opportunity to focus on culture and civilizations rather than just history and archaeology. 3. Having such a wide range of related subjects under one roof allows us to draw upon the experience of our various lecturers in areas such as Archaeology, Ancient history and mythology, religious and Islamic studies, philosophy and Chinese studies to provide a unique and diverse program that will provide something of interest to everyone. 4. Students have the opportunity to go on fieldtrip modules where we explore wonders of the ancient world in person. 5. We are based on an amazing campus, rich in history and set in a great location with enthusiastic, dedicated lecturers, all of which sets out to make your time at university a unique and special experience and start you out on an exciting career.
Students enrolled in this course will gain the opportunity to delve into the past and study in depth the cultures and traditions of ancient civilizations. You will compare and contrast how these people lived by closely examining the different areas of everyday life such as the different cultures, philosophies, military and historical backgrounds and beliefs held by various ancient cultures. By engaging in various different areas of study (archaeology, ancient history and culture to name a few) - a feature unique to our course - our students will gain an otherwise unobtainable view of the lifestyles and thoughts of these ancient civilizations. You will gain the knowledge to understand how superstition, magic, rituals and the afterlife all played a major role in how these people thought and behaved and how they shaped their world, and ours.
A degree in Classical Civilisation involves a wide range of assessment methods. 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. This breadth of assessment type creates variety in the student experience, allowing you to explore the subject in different ways, and to obtain a array of valuable skills that will make you attractive to future employers.
