Classics and Ancient History is the study of the languages, literature, history, art and archaeology of the ancient Greek and Roman civilisations. These two cultures lie at the very foundation of the modern world, and we are surrounded by their legacy: from the Olympic Games to the alphabet, from democracy to Christianity, from theatre to the rule of law—wherever we turn we find ourselves in their debt. These uncannily familiar Greeks and the Romans struggled with many of the same crucial issues as we do: globalisation, the 'clash of civilisations' and the decline of great powers. This exciting major lets you combine the languages with the history and archaeology of the classical world to give you a holistic picture of this vibrant and eternally relevant era. UWA is the only university in Western Australia where you can study this intriguing major.
