The Department of Classical & Archaeological Studies offers two exciting single-honours undergraduate degrees, an Ancient History BA (Hons) and Classical & Archaeological Studies BA (Hons), which emphasise different aspects of studying the ancient world depending on which module pathways you take. We also offer a variety of joint-honours programmes in conjuction with other departments across the School of European Culture and Languages (SECL), or the Faculty of Humanities.
The programmes and module options allow you to concentrate, if you wish, on an historical, archaeological or literary approach, or to combine these differing sources of evidence through a selection of modules. You can also take modules in art and architecture, artefacts and religion, and develop your skills in ancient Latin, Greek and Hieroglyphs. Whichever approach you choose, you will find that much of your time is spent in contact with original sources for the ancient world.
