The programme is composed of three parts: Classical Studies, Religious Studies and Education studies. Two modules in each of these three subjects are taken at every level of study. In the Classical studies section of their programme 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. In the Religious Studies part of their course students will explore religion in their cultural, social, and historical contexts. You will examine the roles that religions play in the pressing issues of our era. The programme takes students beyond superficial media coverage of contemporary events into deeper issues of history, identity, and the implications of religious commitment for issues of world concern. The course covers an extensive array of contemporary, thematic and historical topics and a wide range of religious traditions. This gives students a real insight into the human condition and the multiplicity of religious beliefs and practices in the world. 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.
