You explore the world of the Greeks and the Romans in both historical and contemporary contexts and so come to a new understanding of the world around us. This knowledge will be enhanced by the multidisciplinary skills and research methods gained from studying through new approaches. You gain a critical yet empathetic appreciation of world views which differ from our own in both time and space, as well as seeing how our own culture today is influenced by Classical civilisation and culture around and before us. Study begins by establishing a framework of Classical history, both chronologically and geographically. You are introduced to Classical archaeology, art and architecture (for example temples, sculpture and inscriptions); Classical drama (comedy and tragedy); literature (epics and lyrics); and philosophy (Socrates and Plato). The course explores the nature of each discipline and how each is best studied as the foundation for the rest of the degree. You take a range of modules, including the Depth and Comparative Studies, and Research Skills modules which further develop understanding of the Classical world.
