Course Description

Are you fascinated by ancient civilisations, and how they helped shape the modern world? If so, this is the course for you.

We combine studying the literature, history, art and culture of ancient Greece and Rome with English language, literature and drama from Old English to the present day. You’ll explore different aspects of ancient society, choosing modules ranging from the Aeneid to ancient novels, religion, violence, comedy, animals and citizenship, as well as classics on film or on the modern stage.

You can also choose to study ancient Greek or Latin at any level as part of this course. Studying Greek or Latin will give you greater insight into the original language of texts you’re reading in translation. It also provides linguistic analysis and literacy skills that are valued by employers.

In English, you’ll choose modules from applied linguistics, drama, Old English and medieval literature and language, and literature from 1500 to today, exploring novels, poetry and plays.
