What could I go on to do at the end of my course?
Studying Classical Civilisation will enable you to acquire knowledge and understanding of aspects of the cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome. You will also develop an awareness of the continuing influence of the classical world on later times and of the similarities and differences between the classical world and later times.

Students with a qualification in Classical Civilisation go on to study a variety of courses at university.
