DN530 BA Humanities Classics, Art History & Archaeology (CAS1)
School: Classics

The BA Humanities is an innovative, interdisciplinary four-year programme that combines multiple subjects to provide coherence and depth to student learning within nine carefully structured pathways. Taught by expert academics in the Arts and Humanities, the BA Humanities programme offers both intensive training in particular disciplines and unique skill sets that are developed by bringing together subjects that and relate closely to each other. Students will gain essential life and employment skills, including critical, analytical and creative thinking, and expert communications, while learning how to be adaptable and flexible in preparation for employment in a dynamic work environment.

Students on the Classics, Art History and Archaeology pathway will benefit from the inter-disciplinary study of the visual arts, archaeology, and material culture from prehistory and antiquity to the present day. In Classics, you will use literary and historical analysis along with the visual and material evidence to reconstruct the lost worlds of the Greek and Roman past; in Art History, you will learn the skills of visual analysis and learn how to read images in their social and cultural context; and in Archaeology, you will learn the principles and practices of archaeological approaches to material culture and landscapes in order to explore past human societies. Graduates will have skills in critical thinking and interdisciplinary analysis which will prepare them for careers in the cultural and heritage sector, education, archives, media, journalism, public service, museums and art galleries, research, and a wide range of private sector employment opportunities.
