History and Archaeology of the Greek and Roman World

This course develops skills in interpreting both literary and archaeological evidence from the ancient world. The programme allows students to pursue their interests in depth, either by choosing from a range of specialised taught courses or by exploring subjects of their choice through a special topic option. All students undertake training in research skills and methods, project design, and written and oral communication. They also study Greek or Latin at an appropriate level. It is possible to spend part of the year on a residential course at the British School in Athens or the British School in Rome (subject to acceptance on the course).
