The study of classical civilisation is understandably a wide ranging and far-reaching one encompassing a variety of subjects; history, literature, linguistics, numismatics, epigraphy, archaeology, art, architecture and philosophy. Classical civilisation is the term applied to the civilisations of Greece and Rome. In terms of a time scale, Classical Greece is usually considered to be the 5th and 4th centuries, specifically the period between the end of the Persian Wars to the death of Alexander the Great: 479-323 BC. The Roman period is more difficult to pin down to specific dates. Most universities will start with the beginnings of Roman expansion into Italy in the early 5th century and run to Alaric’s sack of Rome in 410 AD. This course is designed to allow you to study at your own pace and is designed to develop an interest and understanding of Classical Civilisation. The Aims of the Course Develop an interest in, and enthusiasm for, the classical world.

Sociology is the study of people in society. It examines people as social beings on the individual, group and societal level. It can be defined as: ‘the scientific study of human social life, groups and societies.’ Sociology is thus a social science (like psychology or anthropology), rather than a physical one (such as physics, chemistry or biology). It is the task of the sociologist to unravel how ‘nurture’ or ‘social’ factors (rather than ‘nature’ (or genetic, biological or inherited factors, as in the study of biology) influence people at the level of the individual, group or wider society. Sociologists consider how social and socially-influenced factors, such as family, education, ethnicity, social class and gender can play a part in shaping individual identities. Sociologists also consider group behaviour. For example, a sociologist may study how an office team work, or how people’s behaviour is affected by those of their colleagues or work associates. They may also question how factors such as gender or class influence our behaviours as individuals and in group contexts. Sociologists also study society-at-large, and may consider the correlations between factors such as ethnicity or class, for example, and participation in wider structures such as government or education.
