Course details

Modules

This 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 Integrated Foundation Year offered by the Faculty of Humanities has been designed to help you develop the skills and subject-specific knowledge needed to undertake a degree course and specialise in a specific area.

Assessment method

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.
