Classical Civilisation is a rich, diverse and exciting course. It is, in essence, the study of the Ancient World, namely the Greeks and the Romans. The legacy of these two great cultures underpins and has inspired a vast array of the world around us today. Its influence has directly developed such diverse topics as art and archaeology, literature and law, drama and democracy, philosophy and politics and of course the study of history itself. The course mirrors this diversity and offers a unique opportunity for students to study all of these topics within one subject. It represents a perfect complement for students planning to study English Literature, Art, Drama, Politics, History and/or Philosophy and Ethics.
