BA (Hons) Arts - Greek and Roman Civilisation

University College Cork

Key facts

  • A knowledge of Greek & Roman Civilisation is essential for an understanding of the history and culture of Europe, even today
  • The classes are small after first year, and permit far more personal attention and discussion than is possible in larger disciplines
  • The Department of Classics at UCC has a particular strength in the study of Roman history and numismatics (the study of coins)
  • The Boole Library in UCC has one of best classical collections in Ireland, and provides a marvellous resource for both undergraduates and postgraduates
  • A unique emphasis is placed on the importance of the numismatics (study or collection of currency including coins) as well as the literary evidence in most of the historical lectures.
