The Higher Diploma in Greek and Roman Civilisation is ideal for you if you already have a degree and you wish to study Greek and Roman Civilisation intensively.
The course will introduce you to the cultures of the Greeks and Romans, and you will learn how these cultures oversaw the birth and development of the western world, including Christianity.
The study of Greek and Roman literary, philosophical and artistic heritage has hugely influenced Western culture, making this course a really important adjunct to the study of all the European literatures, English, history, philosophy, and the history of art.
