About Classical Civilisation with Greek at University of Wales Trinity Saint David

Course Overview

This scheme allows you to study a wide range of modules covering a variety of aspects of Greek and Roman antiquity, from great historical figures such as Alexander the Great, to the great literary output of Greece and Rome - the Homeric epics, the tragedies, Cicero - as well as basic aspects of everyday life, such as the role of women, religion, warfare and the economy.

At the same time, you will be learning, or continuing your studies in, the ancient Greek language. We offer Greek language modules from complete beginners' level, and within a year, you will be able to read ancient Greek texts directly from the original. This will allow you the opportunity not only to research the Greek world but also to specialize in Greek history, literature and culture. You will be studying the Greek language and texts in the original Greek throughout your degree.

In the first year, modules can be taken on a wide range of literature, mythology and history; in the second and third years, the School offers specialised modules on all aspects of the Greco-Roman world so that you can gain in-depth knowledge in areas of particular interest to you.

The culmination of the degree is the dissertation, where you are free to pursue a topic of your choice in line with our range of research and publication specialisms.

All our modules are taught by specialists and active researchers. The influence of our research on our teaching offers our students the opportunity to learn from the best in the subject and follow the latest scholarly trends and discoveries, whilst our independent study modules allow you to explore your passion in its entirety.

Studying Classical Civilisation with us here at Trinity Saint David means research-led teaching and research-active learning in an environment that allows for both full use of the virtual world and the personal approach of expert tuition.

The school supports very active student-led Classics and Ancient Civilisations societies, which have organised movie nights and theatre trips and put on plays themselves. Check out their facebook pages.
