Classical Civilisation – A Level

This is a fascinating and stimulating course in which you study the ancient civilisations of the Greeks and the Romans.

It is a subject where you will explore ancient literature, culture and archaeology.

You will consider a range of themes and characters from ancient literature and history, and explore through three diverse units:

  • The World of the Hero – exploring why so many myths are petty and vicious, and what ideas people have about heroism.
  • The Imperial Image – exploring the original ‘spin doctor’ Augustus and how he was able to revolutionise Roman politics.
  • Love and Relationships – exploring changing attitudes to love, marriage and sex in ancient societies.

If you want to study something unique, you have an interest in myths and history and enjoy reading, this could be the perfect course for you.
