The great strength of Classical & Archaeological Studies is the hugely interesting and varied range of subjects it includes – literature, mythology, drama, archaeology, art and architecture, history, languages and philosophy – and the way they all connect in the study of ancient civilisations, including those of Egypt, Greece, Rome and their neighbours. At Kent, you also have the opportunity to learn Latin or Ancient Greek, which are taught at beginners, intermediate and advanced levels. Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world – outside Spain, it is the official language of all countries in South and Central America except Brazil, and is widely spoken in many parts of North America. The programme gives you the opportunity to explore the languages and cultures of Spain and Spanish America while developing your language skills. In combination with Classical & Archaeological Studies, and understanding of Hispanic cultures will give you insight into the Roman conquest of Iberian Peninsula. You have the opportunity to spend a year abroad in a Spanish-speaking country, and our advanced language module in Stage 2 focuses on translation and interpreting – valuable skills when looking for employment. Portuguese is also optional for joint honours students. Our facilities include multimedia laboratories, which offer a variety of interactive language learning programmes and dictionaries, and access to audio, video and computer-assisted language learning facilities. Classical & Archaeological Studies and Hispanic Studies equips you with a greater appreciation of our cultural heritage and how it threads through global culture today.
