Full programme details
On this programme you will explore classical civilisation in depth with our expert lecturing staff who have been rated first nationally by students for their enthusiasm and availability (NSS 2012).
Our multidisciplinary approach opens up the treasury of ancient history, art, literature, myth and language, ranging across classical Athens and Sparta, republican Rome, the Roman Empire and modern receptions in film, fiction and painting. Special themes include gender, sexuality, violence, religion and rhetoric.
During the programme, you will have the opportunity to go to Rome on a study trip, explore the display of ancient material culture in London's many museums, and gain practical experience on a specialist placement, for example, working on an archaeological dig, in a school or at a museum.
