Course info

Summary

The Classics degree is language-focused, although how much language is studied and at what level depends upon you. The course is perfect if you have A levels in Greek and/or Latin, but it is also suitable if you have never studied an ancient language before. We offer modules in both Latin and Greek, in prose and verse, at every level.**Year 1**In your first year, you will take two interdisciplinary modules that will give you grounding in the central periods of Greek and Roman culture:Introduction to the Greek WorldMonuments and Memory in the Age of Augustus.You will also take courses in Greek and/or Latin language, at the appropriate level.Other first-year optional modules have previously included:Lives of ObjectsEarly Greek PhilosophyThe Craft of the Ancient HistorianLanguage, Translation and Interpretation.**Year 2**You will take a module to study representative examples of Greek and Roman epic; you will be introduced to a wide range of approaches to the study of epic including its role as a device for memorialisation, and explore the ways in which the genre developed in Greek and Roman antiquity, and beyond:Traditions of Epic.Study of Latin and/or Greek continues in the second year.Many of the other modules in the second year are broad surveys, for example of a historical period or a literary genre.Historical offerings have previously included:The Hellenistic WorldCrisis of The Roman RepublicEmperors and Dynasties.Literary, philosophical and cultural topics have previously included:Greek Literature and The Near EastInterpreting Greek Tragedy TodayCreation and CosmologyAncient Political Thought and ActionStoicismDialogues with AntiquityClassical Receptions and Contemporary CulturesTheatre and Spectacle in Ancient RomeMyths of Transformation in Ovid’s Metamorphoses.**Year 3 (Year 4 if undertaking a Year Abroad)**You will write a Dissertation in your third year.
