Classical Literature gives you the chance to explore some of the most important texts in western literature. You’ll combine core and optional modules to appreciate works by writers such as Homer, Virgil, Aeschylus, Apuleius, Aristotle and Ovid, all read in English translation, offering a window onto Ancient Greek and Roman culture and history. You will explore poetry, prose, and comedy and tragedy plays in the ancient theatre, and discover how later writers have been inspired by the classics. If you have little or no knowledge of Italian, this degree will allow you to learn the language from scratch and develop an understanding of the history, politics and rich culture of a major European economy. Core modules will develop your language skills and introduce you to Italian history and culture, but you’ll also choose from a wide range of optional modules to explore topics from medieval and Renaissance art and literature to cinema and specialised uses of Italian in business.
