Program Description

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.

Note:
Fees for full time Undergraduate EU/International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.
