By combining Ancient History and Philosophy in equal parts students can study the history of Greece and Rome in the Classical period alongside ancient and modern philosophy. With roots of philosophical theory anchored in the ancient world, Philosophy and Ancient History make an excellent combination of subjects. Taught by a variety of internationally recognised experts, Ancient History offers the opportunity to study the history of Greece and Rome in the Classical period (600 BCE to 700 CE). Over three years students will delve into the politics, events and developments underpinning their understanding of many aspects of historical societies and, indeed, their own culture. Students will explore themes, key periods and problems in Greek and Roman history, such as the emergence (and fall) of democracy and the rise, decline and fall of Empires. Royal Holloway’s approach to Philosophy that looks beyond the narrow confines of the Anglo-American analytic or the European tradition of philosophy focus on both traditions, their relationship and connections between them. The result has been the creation of a truly interdisciplinary and collaborative course that brings together academic staff from departments across the university.
