at our Open Days
Our department specialises in not only the ancient civilisations of ancient Greece and Rome, but also Roman Britain and Egypt. We study ‘big antiquity’ with a broad thematic remit, with specialisms in Greek and Roman medicine, astronomy, performance, intellectual history, classical antiquity in modern culture, Egyptology and Christianity.
We encourage our students to take an international perspective. We offer programmes with a year abroad, or the opportunity to spend a year on placement in the UK, gaining valuable workplace experience and increasing your professional contacts.
