Current Ancient History Modules


Students take the two 20-credit Ancient History modules in Year 1 (plus 40 credits in each of their two other subjects), then 120 credits in Year 2 and 120 credits in Year 3; optional modules are taught in alternate years. The modules listed are all those available to students taking Ancient History; students taking integrated degrees have additional options in Archaeology or Medieval History as appropriate. Any student can take up to 20 credits from another degree scheme, subject to the approval of the relevant Boards of Studies.
