¿Qué aprenderé?


Ancient History explores and examines Greek and Roman civilisations, which may appear distant, but remain influential even today, and studying this four-year BA degree opens up a range of exciting career opportunities by helping you develop skills, which are highly valued by employers.

The foundation year gives you an exciting introduction to higher education, exploring the humanities and social sciences before progressing to the full degree programme. It’s ideal if you need a little more support after further education or you are returning to education after a gap.

You’ll have the chance to explore Greek and Roman history and society, architecture and archaeology, warfare and empire, gender, religion, politics and economics, and you can learn Greek or Latin language.


During your foundation year you will explore what it means to be human – studying a range of humanities and social science topics to introduce you to university-level study.

You will start the degree course in your second year, after progression from the foundation year, you will focus on the political, social and cultural history of the Greek and Roman world as well as the transition from Classical antiquity to the Medieval world.

During your four-year Ancient History degree you will have an academic mentor for any pastoral and academic support you may need, and The Society of Ancient Studies and History student society organises social and cultural events.

To enhance your employability prospects we offer work placements through the Literacy to Latin Project to Universities. These placements are within Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and charities only.

In your second year you can choose to take the module, Ancient and Historic Places, and you get the opportunity to go on a study trip or field project focusing on a specific region or place.


Students on this course typically develop excellent oral and writing skills and you will also learn to develop your ideas in a wide range of formats, along with strong research, analytical and problem-solving skills.
