Two modules are currently available. During the course of one module you will complete the study of the grammar book used in Year 1. In the other you will read selected passages from the work of the famous Roman politician and general Julius Caesar.
Two modules are currently available. In one of these modules you will read selected passages from the famous Roman historian Tacitus. In the other you will read a selection of prose texts of different writing styles.

The course is intensive, because the classes are relatively small, both in Year 1 (about 30 students in a class), and especially in Years 2 and 3 (2-8 students in a class). Regular attendance is expected and necessary if you wish to perform satisfactorily in the end-of-year examinations.
Written exams will take place before Christmas and in May. Not all modules will have formal examinations. Many modules use other types of assessment including in-class tests, essays etc.
Refer to CK101and CK108. Students choose Arts subjects when registering for first year.
