Students who take Classical Civilisation with Latin at Lampeter UWTSD get the following benefits:
1. We provide the opportunity to study Latin in-depth. An array of ancient texts are explored at advanced level, both prose and verse. Among the type of texts students will get the opportunity to study are the poetry of Ovid and Julius Caesar’s Gallic Wars.
2. All students taught in small interactive groups, in a friendly and supportive environment.
3. Students have the opportunity to 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.
The Classical Civilisation side of the 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.
With the Latin side of the course students will be able to study the fascinating world of Graeco-Roman Antiquity through direct engagement with Latin texts and inscriptions. Students can really get to grips with the ancient world, not relying on translations by modern authors, but truly appreciate this material in a direct and unmediated way.
A wide range of assessment methods are utilised. 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.
