About Classical Studies at The Open University

This fascinating course examines many different aspects of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds - their literature, history, philosophy, archaeology, languages and material cultures - through a scholarly tradition that is both fast-moving and long-standing. You will investigate the different disciplinary areas within Classical Studies, and you will come into direct contact with a wide range of evidence from classical antiquity including literary texts and material artefacts, which you'll examine from multiple theoretical and methodological perspectives. You will also acquire and develop research skills that will enhance your knowledge of the ancient Graeco-Roman world and prepare you for independent study, culminating in a dissertation.
