Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you. The course This course will enable you to pursue your interest in the history, archaeology and art of the ancient world. It looks at the societies and cultures of the ancient Mediterranean through their written texts, visual art and material remains, from grand temples, monuments and villas to the humble residues of everyday life. You’ll benefit from many hands-on learning experiences, including handling authentic ancient coins, recreating the experience of a Greek symposium using replica vases, visiting historical sites and museums in the UK, and taking part in our annual classical play, which is staged at a professional theatre and played to a public audience of over a thousand people. You will have the opportunity to study topics such as Greek democracy, the Roman cultural revolution under Augustus, the Roman Near East, or ancient global history, in modules specifically focused on Greco- Roman history, art, archaeology and architecture. You will take either Latin or Ancient Greek in your first year, and study four modules per year. Our four-year Ancient History and Classical Archaeology with Study in Europe degree has a similar structure to the three-year course, but you will spend your third year studying classical subjects at one of our partner universities in Europe (currently in Bologna, Padua, Rome or Venice, with recent confirmation of new placements in Berlin and Tübingen, Germany), before returning for your final year at Warwick. During the year abroad, you will benefit not only from full immersion in another language and culture, but from Italy or Germany’s excellent universities and world-leading classical scholarship.
