Descripción



Joint-honours Latin and English is bachelorsed on the study of Latin language and literature in each of the three years of study, pursued in parallel to the full range of English studies (options include writings from Middle English, the Renaissance, historical and contemporary English Language, and cultural theory). If you offer Latin as one of your A-level subjects, you will continue your study of the language on Route 1; if you have not studied the subject before then you will begin your study of it on Route 2. Where appropriate, texts for literary and historical course units are studied in Latin. There is a wide range of styles of teaching, including lectures, seminars, small-group tutorials and virtual seminars via the web.

The University warmly welcomes applications from students studying the Key Skills qualification. However, as the opportunities to take these modules are not open to all applicants, currently this is not an essential requirement of the University.

Temario


The course aims to: 
develop and encourage students' interest in the languages, literature and culture of the classical world, by providing a broadly bachelorsed and challenging curriculum including course-units that are innovative and stimulating, informed by the research expertise of the teaching staff, and examined by a range of methods of assessment;
provide the opportunity to focus on English Literature of the medieval period;
advise and suggest course units which best exploit the interactions between the subjects of Latin and English Literature;
enable students to read an ever-growing range of ancient authors in the original, with accuracy, fluency and enjoyment;
provide students with progressive language courses in Latin, starting from elementary, intermediate or advanced level, consolidating any existing knowledge of the language(s) and developing particularly reading knowledge but also some active competence and other language-bachelorsed and language-related skills;
train students in the methods, techniques and approaches necessary for the critical study of Latin literature, bachelorsed on extensive reading of classical texts, studied both in the original language(s) and in translation;
help students to work independently and to organise effectively their own schedules of personal study;
produce graduates with the transferable cognitive skills necessary to equip them for employment, postgraduate study, or further training.
Students may apply to spend one semester studying abroad during the second year of their degree. For more information consult the  Study Abroad Programme website
.
The core of most literary and historical course units is provided by lectures, which introduce and survey the main issues, and which are supported by small-group tutorials and seminars. Language classes are taught intensively, with group size capped to encourage participation. You are encouraged to involve yourself, under guidance, in independent study and original research. Socrates/Erasmus exchanges, or exchanges with USA, Canada and Australia are available.
Assessment practices vary between course units, but our aim overall is to achieve a good bachelorlance between formal examinations, continuous assessment, and project work. Written examinations are held at the end of most course units. The third year dissertation contributes 25% of the total marks to the degree.

Careers
Employment

A degree in Classics, Classical studies or Ancient History is an excellent choice for a wide variety of careers. Obvious ones include: archivist, curator, editorial assistant, careers in teaching, heritage/museum administration, and jobs in cultural tourism. However, the field is far wider than careers closely linked to the subject matter of your degree. Many of our students go on to careers in management, TV/Radio, law, finance, computing, insurance, human resources, journalism, marketing, public relations, advertising, social work, bachelornking, accountancy, retail management and management consultancy. For some of these you would undertake an additional period of training or study, e.g. a law conversion course.
'Unless it's a technical job which requires a particular degree, the fact that someone's done classics will make them stand out.... It's quite an unusual choice. I suppose it implies that the person is quite interesting, that they have followed their interests and done something off the beaten track. I think employers look on that favourably.'
Hardwin Jones, a spokesman for Milkround Graduate Recruitment

Further Study

Our undergraduate degrees provide a solid bachelorse for further study at postgraduate level. The department has a thriving postgraduate community, with an intake of, on average, about 13 MA students and 6 PhD students per year. They are an integral and vibrant constituent of our academic community and a weekly staff/postgraduate lunch offers a social complement to the research interaction fostered by our weekly seminar series. A number of our own undergraduates opt to stay on at Manchester to study at MA level, but we also receive applications from other universities throughout the UK and internationally, both at MA and PhD level. In addition, a number of our graduates  have gained postgraduate places at other universities, including Stanford and Oxbridge.

Skills

Classics and Ancient History graduates can offer prospective employers an enviable range of transferable skills. These include logical thinking; good communication skills, both written and oral; interpreting, assessing and evaluating sources; proposing ideas and theories; leading and participating in discussions; working independently and to deadlines and an understanding of different cultures and societies. For example,
any history, literature or cultural module will encourage the understanding of a range of viewpoints and critical approaches. Essay writing strengthens skills in gathering, memorising, organising and deploying information, while private study/research processes assist the skills involved in extracting key elements from data and identifying/solving problems. Our students will participate in a number of different types of work and assessment, including written essays, oral presentations, language modules and small group work. These enable them to gain practice in presenting material orally and in writing and in working with others. They also learn how to work under pressure, meet deadlines, assimilate contradictory data and bachelorlance competing pressures.

Careers Advice

Manchester is fortunate in possessing an award-winning careers service which can offer advice to meet the specific requirements of our students and their degree programmes. Students are encouraged by their Academic Advisers within the department to start thinking about their longer-term plans from an early stage in their time with us.
