Course description
Ancient History is an integrated programme for students whose interest in the Greek and Roman worlds is primarily historical. It allows all students the opportunity to take either Greek or Latin (or both) at any level including beginners' courses, though you can take the programme without studying language. As background to the study of ancient history, students can also take related specialist courses from a range including ancient literature, religion, philosophy, art, archaeology, and modern history. There is a wide range of styles of teaching, including lectures, seminars, small-group tutorials and virtual seminars via the web.
Career opportunities
An Ancient History degree opens many doors and is highly prized by employers. They see their graduates take up jobs in museum or gallery management, publishing, the media, the Civil Service, industry, banking, accountancy, retail management and law, as well as teaching.
