Classical Studies, Anthropology, Education Studies

The programme is composed of three parts: Classical Studies, Anthropology and Education studies. Two modules in each of these three subjects are taken at every level of study. With Classical studies students will explore their interest in the cultures, literatures and languages of the ancient world, then this is the programme for you. A degree in Classical Studies gives you the opportunity to study a wide range of modules from mythology to religion and all genres of ancient literature, such as epic, tragedy, comedy and satire. Modules exploring the influence of the ancient world on modern popular culture, such as film and literature, are also available. Study of ancient language is an option but not compulsory. Anthropology at its core is an exploration of what it means to be human. It takes the whole world as its point of interest and brings one face-to-face with the eye-opening variety of human behaviours both in the present and from the past. Anthropologists examine the daily and mundane, the rare and ‘exotic’, and the local alongside the global to help address the pressing social issues our world faces nowadays. Doing a degree in anthropology forces you to question ideas and assumptions about right and wrong and good and bad by giving ethically sophisticated consideration to the sustainability of human practices. This makes anthropology the most dynamic, challenging and rewarding discipline one can study in the humanities. The Education Studies component of this major/minor degree comprises two modules of study per year over the three years of your degree. Modules within the Education Studies part of the degree will cover a range of themes including, for example, the historical development of education, learning cultures and approaches to learning, the philosophy of learning and education, and the legal frameworks within which education operates today.
