Specialise in Classical Studies for your Bachelor of Arts at Massey
Gain a deep understanding of 21st century culture
Knowledge of ancient Greece and Rome is essential for an understanding of our own modern civilisation. The Greeks and Romans had a profound and lasting influence on world culture in the areas of:
art and architecture.
They also created and developed nearly every genre of Western literature.
With a Massey Bachelor of Arts (Classical Studies) you can trace meaningful connections between classical antiquity and our own 21st-century civilisation.
Follow your passion and enhance your future
Classical studies is interdisciplinary - you can study what you enjoy and focus on subject areas that spark your interest. You can explore the classical world from many angles: literature, history, art, mythology, religion, war, sexuality, and interaction with other civilisations such as Egypt.
Our evidence for the ancient world is challenging; it is sometimes fragmentary, sometimes obscure, often biased or distorted. With a Massey BA (Classical Studies) you will make sense of it through argument and interpretation, thus acquiring and developing a sought-after range of skills.
Massey offers passionate and friendly lecturers, a world-class distance-learning programme and multimedia learning materials.
A Bachelor of Arts in Classical Studies is a good fit if you:
want to gain an insight into two of the most fascinating civilisations in history
are interested in the ancient roots of modern Western civilisation
want a rich and challenging classical education that will make you very appealing to employers.
