Pam astudio’r cwrs hwn

Our degree develops knowledge and critical understanding of the political, social, economic and cultural structures of these ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean societies.

Unusual in the UK, our programme also allows you to discover Mesopotamia, the Levant and Egypt, Persia and the Byzantine Empire.

For us, social and cultural topics are just as important as historical period. You’ll encounter fascinating themes with contemporary relevance, from warfare, gender, religion, art and literature to medicine and science. Particularly popular is the reception of antiquity in film and popular culture.

Our degree is designed to help you cultivate the skills of the historian. You’ll master assessing a range of evidence and evaluating varying and sometimes conflicting interpretations to construct your own robust and coherent argument. You will practice expressing your new findings in ever innovative written forms as well as verbally within a nurturing environment.

Nodweddion nodedig

Strwythur y cwrs

Rydym yn gweithio gyda'n myfyrwyr ar hyn o bryd yn diweddaru ac yn gwella cynnwys y cwrs hwn. Mae’r wybodaeth isod yn adlewyrchu'r cwricwlwm presennol a fydd yn newid yn ôl pob tebyg. Disgwylir i ni fod wedi gorffen adolygu'r cwrs erbyn mis Awst 2022. Bydd y dudalen hon wedi'i diweddaru erbyn mis Hydref 2022 i ddangos y newidiadau.

BA Ancient History is a three-year degree programme comprising of core modules, which provide essential skills and training, and a wide variety of optional modules that allow you to tailor your degree to meet your interests. You will study modules totalling 120 credits each year.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2022/23. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2022

Blwyddyn un

The first year provides you with a focused introduction to the study of Greek and Roman history at University which fosters your critical and analytical skills through close engagement with the ancient sources and modern interpretations.

You take four 20-credit Ancient History modules and may take 40 credits in another Humanities subject to make 120 credits over the year.

Blwyddyn dau

In Year two, you will take two 20-credit core modules plus 80 credits of optional modules.

You may be able to take one or two modules from another Academic School, selected from the University’s Free Standing Module Collection.

Blwyddyn tri

In Year three, all students write a dissertation on a topic of their choice (40 credits) and take 80 credits of optional modules.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

The School enables you to develop in a high-quality learning environment, supported by a student-orientated approach to the acquisition of knowledge and skills. Teaching is delivered through a mixture of lectures, seminars, classes, practical workshops, field trips, and individual tutorials. You will also undertake independent study and research, under the guidance of a supervisor.

Lectures provide an overview of the key concepts and frameworks for a topic, equipping students to carry out independent research for the seminars and to develop their own ideas.

Seminars provide an opportunity for students to explore the ideas outlined in the lecture in a small group environment. Seminars would usually consist of about 15 students and the seminar leader (a member of the teaching team). Seminars may take various formats, including plenary group discussion, small group work and student-led presentations. Seminars offer a rewarding opportunity to engage critically with the key ideas and reading of a topic, and to explore areas of particular interest with an expert in the field. It is vital that students prepare for seminars (undertaking any set reading, developing independent critical thought) in order to gain the maximum benefit from the sessions.

Lectures and seminars enable students to develop communication and analytical skills, and to develop critical thinking in a supportive environment.

Gyrfaoedd a lleoliadau gwaith
