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 and small-group tutorials.

Flexible Honours may allow you to study an additional arts, languages or cultures subject. Find out more here .

Fees

Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
