Ancient World Studies embraces the broad study of Classical Greece and Rome, as well as Egypt and the Near East from 3000 BCE to the 4th century CE. You can choose from a variety of subject streams, which combine the study of ancient languages and/or texts in translation such as myth, literature, history and philosophy with the study of archaeology, art and architectural monuments.

You can focus on a particular time period, geographic region, technical specialisation such as myth or ceramics, or thematic area of study. You will gain insight into and understanding of contemporary society by exploring how ancient cultures have contributed to the development of our modern world, with regard to gender and ethnic identity, warfare, colonialism and imperialism, the propagandistic power of literary and visual imagery, and technology and economy. You will develop skills in research, writing, analysis, and communication that promote career flexibility.
