Why choose Classical Civilisation?
1. We provide the opportunity to study a wide array of topics and themes. You can focus your attention on mythology and religion, literature and art, or social, political and economic history as suits your tastes.
2. All students are taught through small groups, with interactive lectures, one-to-one tutorials, and seminars – all in a friendly and supportive environment.
3. Students have the opportunity to go on local and international field trips, as well as study abroad opportunities with our partners at Bologna (Italy), Tarragona (Spain) and Hobart and William Smith (USA)
4. Staff have teaching and research expertise in a wide array of areas from the poetry of Ovid and Statius to the study of ancient warfare, economics, iconography, and Romano-Celtic religious practices.
5. Students have the opportunity to choose elective modules from all other humanities subjects and topics.
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.
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.
