About this course

Their modules cover a range of art historical and archaeological approaches, such as chronological (e.g. ‘Art and power in the Age of Alexander’; regional (e.g. ‘Building Greece’); site-based (e.g. City of Rome); thematic (e.g. ‘The classical art of the body’); and museum-based (e.g. ‘Grand Tour: antiquities in London’). They also offer the opportunity to participate in a fully-funded trip associated with a classical archaeology module, courtesy of the Rumble Fund.

While you will focus on art and archaeological modules, you can also take modules in literary studies and philosophy, and you can learn Latin and/or Greek at a level appropriate to your prior knowledge, whatever that may be. Many historical modules are highly relevant, such as ‘Roman London’ and ‘Pompeii’, and there is even the opportunity to take a module from outside the department.

First-year students who flourish in Latin or Greek language may transfer to the Classics (Greek & Latin) BA in their second year of study via their 'Pathway B'. Such students will attend intensive summer school language modules between the first and second year, and between the second and third year of study.
