Course details

Modules

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.

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.

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.
