The Classical Archaeology BA course comprises modules totalling 360 credits and will be studied over three years. Students will participate in a fully-funded trip associated with the classical archaeology modules, courtesy of the Rumble fund. The first year of study will consist of one required module that provides a rounded introduction to classical archaeology and will develop their analytical skills and introduce them to advanced historical theory and methodology. Students will also cover a range of art historical and archaeological approaches, including chronological, site-based, thematic, museum-based and regional. Students can also select modules in literary studies and philosophy, and they can learn Latin or Greek at a level appropriate to their prior knowledge. The second year is made up of optional modules, allowing students the freedom to develop their study pathway to reflect your interests. Students will study art and archaeology modules totalling 60 credits, plus further modules totalling 60 credits, of which 30 may come from another Department in the Faculty of Arts & Humanities or the Department of War Studies. In the final year, students will complete a 10,000-word dissertation on an approved subject of their choice with emphasis on self-directed research. The optional modules students will also study reflect the current research and expertise of staff in the department, providing you with the opportunity to study specialist subjects in-depth.
