Enlightened thinkers, bloody wars and incredible drama – the world of Classical Antiquity had it all. Explore it with us and discover the immense cultural and political impacts we still feel today.

Explore the fascinating world of Classical Antiquity and delve into the distinctive and dynamic societies of Ancient Greece, the Roman Republic and Empire and Graeco-Roman Egypt. Together, these left an incredible legacy that still shapes our world, from democracy and philosophy to law and architecture. Above all, it’s a history of incredible violence: war was as natural to the ancients as rainfall. So, it’s not just a history of cultural interaction and intellectual achievements – it’s also a history of the social, psychological and political impact of war, conquest and conflict.

It’s a degree that offers plenty of flexibility. So, while you’ll study the broader scope of antiquity, you’ll also have the chance to drill down into specific aspects of the three different societies – as well as looking into a huge range of other topics and areas.

This course has a Foundation Year available.
