About Classical Civilisation at Trinity College Dublin

Is this the right course for me?

You will need to have a strong interest in the Greek and Roman worlds to enjoy this course. You are not required, however, to have a knowledge of Greek or Latin.

Course content

Classical civilisation provides a comprehensive approach to Greek and Roman civilisation. Lectures and tuition are given on Greek and Latin literature, Greek philosophy, Greek and Roman history and society, art and architecture, religion and mythology.

Topics studied include ancient drama, epic and lyric poetry, philosophy, and cultural issues such as the place of women and the role of literature in ancient society. All authors are studied in translation, but you will have an opportunity to take either Latin or Greek as an optional extra in the Junior Sophister (third) year, and as a special subject in your final year. All authors are placed within the social, religious and political context of their times.
