BA in Classical Archaeology and Classical Civilisation
This programme is taught jointly by the Institute of Archaeology and the Department of Greek and Latin and is designed to appeal to students with a general interest in the Classical world and wanting a particular focus on the art and material culture of Greece and Rome. All students acquire a basic grounding in one or more of the languages of the Classical world (Greek, Latin or both), and also training in a wide range of archaeological approaches to the past.
As a discipline, Classical archaeology prepares you for a wide range of future careers, both within archaeology or heritage studies, and far beyond. The personal skills, analytical techniques and general ways of thinking are all highly transferable, but this degree is also intended as a suitable grounding for more subsequent graduate research on similar topics.
- Gain a broad knowledge of past human societies and their development, and the varied methods of archaeological data recovery, analysis and interpretation.
