Discover With Us How The Ancient World Can Help Our Modern Lives!
Be like Cicero and make the study of the distant past work for you. The degrees we offer bring the most up-to-date research approaches and technologies to bear on the cultures, literatures, and connections of the ancient world. You’ll find out together with us how exciting this pursuit of the evidence of ancient lives, evidence that has survived by chance and often in pieces, can be. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop your skills in analysing, interpreting, and sharing this material. Such skills in communicating your knowledge are valued by employers throughout the world of work.
Under the umbrellas of Classical Studies, Ancient History, and Egyptology (with Ancient History), we’ll provide you with pathways to explore the ancient world, in its vast geographical and chronological breadth, together with our supportive team of staff. We do not presume any prior familiarity with the ancient evidence, nor do you need to study or have studied ancient languages (though we love it if you do!). We are committed to widening participation and fostering passion for our subjects, through such means as the volunteering opportunities at our in-house museum, the Egypt Centre, our Schools Work Placement module, and many others.
