About the course
Develop a deeper understanding of the classical cultures that underpin the modern world—our political and legal systems, our philosophical and social thought, and the myths and stories you see on the page, stage and screen. Use the past to shed light on the present day. Take advantage of research strengths in areas such as the classical influences on modern film, the history of sexuality, and ancient and modern democracy. Compare Graeco-Roman mythologies with those of Māori or Pasifika peoples. Choose your approach from an array of disciplines including philology, literary criticism, art history, archaeology, political theory, source criticism, sexuality and gender studies, reception theory, anthropology, epigraphy and film theory. Classical Studies allows you to study the ancient world without an in-depth knowledge of the Latin or Greek languages. Enhance your toolkit of analytical and communication skills through the rigorous thinking, analysis and understanding of complex issues that comes with advanced study in classics.
