What will I learn?
During this two-year course you will further your knowledge of classical civilisations as well as develop key academic skills.
Over the duration of the course you use your passion and curiosity for the past to help you study social, political and literary examples of the classical era as you delve into the inner workings of people at the dawn of civilisation. You will head back to ancient Greece and Rome and study aspects of archaeology, history, theatre and philosophy to provide the foundation of a fascinating A-Level. You will ask questions such as: - What does the Odyssey tell us about the world of Homer, its author? - What might the ancient Romans have been able to see and do in their towns? - What can archaeology tell us about the lives of the people of Pompeii? - Was Virgil anything other than a court poet for the emperor Augustus?
You will cover topics such as:
- Homer's odyssey and society
- Greek Historians
- Roman Britain
- Comic drama in the ancient world
Your assessment for this course will be entirely through exams.
