About Ancient History and Archaeology at University of Nottingham

Course overview

This course emphasises both the common ground between ancient history and archaeology and the different approaches of the two disciplines. It is suited to those who wish to approach an understanding of the ancient world through both the material, literary and documentary evidence. Study of Greek or Latin is not required, but may be undertaken as part of the course.

Year one

For Ancient History, you will study two core modules introducing the history and culture of Greece and Rome, and an in-depth module on one topic (e.g. Alexander). Beginners' language or Classics and Popular Culture are optional. In Archaeology, you take core modules introducing you to methodology and archaeological practice, and choose from optional modules on particular topics.

Year two

Year two combines a wide range of optional modules in both Archaeology and Ancient History with either an extended source study in Ancient History, or further core modules in Archaeology, to prepare you for third year dissertation work.

Year three

You will either do a 10,000 word dissertation or take a Special Subject in the Classics Department; you will also study further optional modules, or continue your language work, and further modules in Archaeology.

By the end of this course

You will have a broad knowledge of archaeological theory and practices, and periods of ancient history, and will have undertaken in-depth study into areas of your own interest. Your transferable skills will include communication skills, the ability to construct a logical argument, and independent thinking.
