Ancient History and English - University of Leeds

Ancient History offers you the chance to explore the Ancient Greeks and Romans, and the people they envied and emulated, traded with and invaded, through the study of their literature, architecture, art, material culture and a range of other sources. You’ll combine core and optional modules to gain an understanding of life in these unique societies as they evolved, as well as developing your own interests through investigating the ‘Athenian empire’, Sparta and the Peloponnesian League, and Rome from Republic to Empire. This prestigious degree allows you to explore the full range of poetry, prose and drama in English, from Old English and medieval literature to contemporary writing from around the world. Core modules will give you a thorough grounding in the development of literature in English over time, while optional modules enable you to develop specialist knowledge of topics that interest you. From Arthurian legends or Shakespeare to postcolonial fiction, there’s plenty of variety to choose from.
