Five key reasons to study Ancient History at UWTSD:
1. We offer to our students a wide choice of different modules and topics, spanning from Archaic Greece to the Late Antique Roman Empire.
2. All students are taught in small groups, with interactive lectures, one-to-one tutorials, and seminars
3. The course follows an innovative immersive learning approach
4. All our staff are research active and experts in their field meaning we can offer teaching that is cutting edge and informed by the latest developments in the subject
5. Students have the opportunity to choose elective modules from all other humanities subjects and topics
The Ancient History scheme allows you to study a wide range of topics covering not only fascinating figures like Alexander the Great, but also basic aspects of everyday life, such as bathing, dining, performing religious rituals, warfare and the economy.
In the first year, modules can be taken on a wide range of periods and themes; in the second and third years, we offer specialised modules on all aspects of Graeco-Roman history so that you can gain in-depth knowledge in areas of particular interest to you. Options are also available to study select modules in the wider Faculty of Humanities, for example in ancient Egyptian culture and history, ancient Chinese History, Bronze Age archaeology or Celtic Civilisations. All students have the opportunity to pursue their interests and conduct their own research in the second-year independent project and the third-year dissertation.
A degree in Ancient History 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 also embeds within the Ancient History programme the specific employability skills desired, indeed required, by employers today.
