Our BA in Ancient History and Classical Archaeology uniquely brings the two disciplines together and is based on our extensive experience in developing and teaching both archaeology and ancient history courses and our world-leading research.
This course will introduce you to key issues in the study of the past through textual and material remains, encouraging you to reflect on the contrasting and complementary images that these approaches create. You will be learn to decipher short texts in the Greek and Latin alphabets, allowing you to work directly with ancient written evidence.
We have been successfully teaching distance learning courses to students around the world since 1996. This course is based on our extensive experience in developing and teaching archaeology and our world-leading research. Our modules are designed to inspire you and enable you to gain a wider knowledge of your chosen topic.
We will provide you with an intellectually challenging and stimulating curriculum that draws on the expertise of staff from the School of Archaeology and Ancient History members. We have a proven track record of successfully delivering distance learning courses that will help you gain the transferable skills necessary for successful career development or further academic study. As a result, our courses are highly valued by employers, who recognise the key transferable and subject-specific skills gained.
If you know from the outset that you can’t, or don’t want to, commit to a full BA, you can apply for the Certificate or Diploma only. Similarly, if for any reason, after you have applied, you are unable to complete the full BA programme, you can opt to leave at the end of Level 1 with a Certificate or at the end of Level 2 with a Diploma.
Perhaps you don’t want a formal qualification, but would just like to study archaeology or ancient history for interest? It's possible to study up to two Level 1 or 2 modules without registering for a formal qualification. Successful completion of an associate module will entitle you to a transcript formally recording your achievement and you may be able to count the credits achieved on that module towards further undergraduate study at Leicester or elsewhere at a later date.
If you have studied Archaeology at undergraduate level before, it may be possible for you to transfer the credits from your previous study. For example, if you already hold a Certificate in Archaeology, you may be able to enter the courses at the Level 2/Diploma stage. In order for us to assess your eligibility to transfer credits, we will need to see a transcript of any credits you have achieved to date, showing the title of all modules and the marks/grades awarded.
If you're interested in studying this course full-time rather than part-time, please contact that Distance Learning Hub on email@example.com, or call +44 (0)116 252 2903.
