Ancient History explores and examines the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome—and their interactions with the world beyond. Such civilisations may appear distant but remain influential even today. Studying this three-year BA degree will introduce you to theories, methodologies, and sources (including archaeology) to help you grasp the variety of lived experience in the ancient world. We will help you to develop a very particular set of skills in appreciating, understanding, and presenting evidence. The rigour we aim to foster in your thinking will open up a range of exciting career opportunities for you in a wide range of professions.
You’ll have the chance to get to grips with Greek and Roman history and society, architecture and archaeology, warfare and empire, gender, religion, politics and economics—or learn about ancient Egypt. You can also learn ancient Greek or Latin.
