About Greek and Roman Civilisation - Arts at University College Cork

Overview

This course covers the history and culture of ancient Greece and Rome, from Rome's foundation, c. 753BC, until the eclipse of Greek and Roman culture in the East, c. AD750. This includes the study of mythology, literature (poetry, prose, drama), art, architecture, and military and political history. No knowledge of the ancient languages is required, but you will also be given the opportunity to learn some Greek or Latin if you wish to do so.

The Roman section includes a survey of Roman history from the emergence of Etruscan civilisation (c.800BC) until the end of the first imperial dynasty with the death of Nero (AD68), followed by an examination of selected key works of art, architecture (e.g. the Colosseum) and literature (e.g. Virgil's Aeneid).
