About BA (Hons) Greek, BA (Hons) - at University of Nottingham

This course combines the learning of Greek to a high level of proficiency with the wider study of a range of aspects of classical history, society and culture. It is particularly suited to those of you who wish to specialise in Greek but not learn Latin. You will study Greek language and literature in all three years; those with A level Greek start in advanced language and literature modules, those without take language modules at an appropriate level. In the rest of your course, you will follow the course structure for all our Classics Courses.

Year one
You begin a programme of intensive language study designed to bring your proficiency up to degree level and allow you to engage on all levels with texts in the original Greek. You will also take core modules introducing Greek and Roman literature, art and history, and a first year in-depth study. An introduction to the reception of classical culture in the modern world (Classics and Popular Culture) is optional.

Year two
You will continue with Greek modules at an appropriate level and do an extended source study as preparation for third year dissertation work. You also choose from a wide range of optional modules on the literature, art, history and society of the ancient world, including an innovative independent second year project.

Year three
As well as continuing Greek at Advanced level, you will either pursue your interests in a 10,000-word dissertation or take a Special Subject, which involves detailed, in-depth study of a particular topic (taught in seminars). A choice of further optional modules completes the year.

By the end of the course
You will have a broad knowledge of Ancient Greece, its culture and reception, and an in-depth knowledge of specific areas covered in your dissertation or special subject. You will be able to read ancient Greek texts in the original. Transferable skills you will have developed include the ability to think independently, to construct a logical argument, and to communicate effectively.
