FIVE REASONS TO CHOOSE MEDIEVAL STUDIES AND CLASSICAL CIVILISATION:

• Hands-on approach which allows students to get to grips with medieval manuscripts and chronicles
• If you are interested in ancient Greece and Rome - their history, literature, mythology and societies - then this degree is for you.
• 100% of UWTSD’s Classical Civilisation students were satisfied with the teaching on their course – NSS 2018.
• You will attend small-group classes with a focus on discussion and learning activities to encourage the self-development and critical reflection accepted as key to the development of personal and professional capacities.
This degree combines the academic study of Medieval Studies and Classical Civilisation:
The Medieval Studies programme at UWTSD allows students to explore many different aspects of this rich and vibrant period of history. It combines a study of change over time in broad sweeping survey modules with more focused, topic-centred modules.
Each module is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and workshops, always in small groups. The teaching is research-led, rooted in the professional interests and expertise of the lecturers.
Students will encounter multiple approaches to and source materials for our understanding of the medieval past, with a particular focus on utilising the onsite archive of manuscript and printed primary sources. This results in a rounded and comprehensive programme of study, which grounds students in the requisite theories, methodologies and practices of the discipline of history.
Classical Civilisation 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 "bogeymen" 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.
There is a strong sense of community among students and staff, and the ratio of staff to students is such that students can access their lecturers when needed. The small classes are always friendly and never intimidating, allowing staff to know their students on a first-name basis.
Assessments will vary from module to module to ensure that students are able to improve, develop, and practise a broad range of skills. Students may be assessed through essays, group projects, presentations, portfolios, reviews or exams.
