Ancient History at Bristol gives you the flexibility to combine core units on Greco-Roman culture and history with more specialised topics. In the first two years you will take core units exploring the history of the ancient Greek and Roman world, the sources of information available for reconstructing it, and the different approaches employed by modern scholars. You will also choose from optional units on a wide range of topics dealing with Roman and Greek society and culture, including literature, philosophy and art. You may also choose to study Latin or Greek. There is the possibility of studying abroad for one semester in the second year. In your third year you will choose units from a range of special subject seminars based on our academics' wide range of research interests. In co-operation with a supervisor you will research and write a dissertation on a topic of your choice. You will also take the Applied Classics unit and plan, market and execute a project aimed at presenting the ancient world to the wider public, with a member of staff acting as adviser.
