Classical Civilisation is the study of aspects of the great civilisations of Ancient Greece and Rome. When you study this subject you will begin to see just how the ancient world influenced our modern ideas about Literature, History, Politics, Philosophy, Art, Architecture, Theatre and Sport. The course is popular with many students because we organise plenty of trips! Recently we have visited Ribchester, Hadrian’s Wall, Wroxeter, Oxford, Cirencester, Chedworth Villa and the British Museum in London. The now annual Easter trip to Naples and Rome is popular even amongst non-classicists!
We are keen to have students who have a genuine interest in the ancient world and enjoy researching, reading and writing about their interest. The subject is held in high regard as a traditional academic qualification in itself but in combination with other subjects will lead to a variety of Higher Education courses and career pathways.
