University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Ancient History at Bristol gives you the flexibility to combine core units on Greco-Roman culture with more specialised topics. In the first two years you will take core units exploring the ancient Greek and Roman world, the sources of information available and the different approaches employed by modern scholars. You will also choose from optional units on ancient language, literature, philosophy, art, and political, social or cultural history.
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 may 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.
