Ancient History and Italian (BA) offers students the chance to not only learn and develop their knowledge of a rapidly popular European language, but provides the opportunity to place this knowledge in the historical context of Rome and other ancient civilizations. Paired with a compulsory half-year abroad in Italy, students will have first-hand experience of using vital language skills alongside their historical academic studies – leading to important (and employable) skills acquisition.
