About Ancient History at University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Course Overview

The Ancient History scheme allows you to study a wide range of modules covering not only fascinating figures like Alexander the Great, but also basic aspects of everyday life, such as warfare and the economy.

In the first year, modules can be taken on a wide range of periods and themes; in the second and third years, the School offers specialised modules on all aspects of Greco-Roman history so that you can gain in-depth knowledge in areas of particular interest to you. Options are also available to study select modules in the wider Faculty of Humanities, for example in Egyptian Culture and History, Chinese History or Theology. All students have the opportunity to pursue their own interests and conduct their own research in the second-year independent project and the third-year dissertation.

100% of UWTSD students at the School of Classics agreed that staff are good at explaining things - National Student Survey 2016

Key Features

We use a wide range of assessment methods used on the course, such as essays, presentations, wikis, web pages and reflective reports, so that the assessment reflects the student's performance as a whole. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in the wider research community and are always welcome at our monthly research seminar series, which feature speakers from around the world.

We are one of the largest Schools on campus but this does not mean that you will get lost in the crowd - there is a strong sense of community among our students and staff. The ratio of staff to students means that we can offer an excellent student support network. Every student has a personal tutor, and the School's dedicated Student Support Liaison Officer is always on hand should extra support be needed.
