Students of classical studies and archaeology are uniquely placed to develop flexible and critical skills at a leading international centre for the study of the ancient world. The only program of its kind in Australia, classical studies and archaeology draws upon cutting edge research, the world class collection at the Ian Potter Museum of Art and a range of innovative multimedia resources. The Centre for Classics and Archaeology, within the School of Historical Studies, provides students with a multi-disciplinary perspective on ancient Graeco-Roman, Aegean and Near Eastern civilisations. A number of fieldwork options are provided in which students gain direct and practical project experience. Students also have the opportunity to study Ancient Greek (Language study streams) and Latin (Language study streams) and may specialise in a particular area or pursue broader interests. An articulated structure of higher degree study options exists for students seeking to build on their interests and the knowledge gained in this area. The study of classics and archaeology is designed to foster a wide range of critical skills in the historical, literary, archaeological, linguistic and art historical analysis of ancient civilisations. A diverse range of interests are accommodated by subjects that cover such topics as archaeology, religious, political and social life in ancient societies, classical literature and mythology, art and architecture. Classical studies and archaeology students graduate with transferable skills that draw on the analytical and research knowledge gained in this area of study and which can lead to a variety of career options and pathways.

|Core Participation Requirements:||The Diploma in Arts requires a standard level of ability across all disciplines. It will be assumed students are able to access and attend classes on a regular basis, are capable of learning in a University environment and will be able to take responsibility for their own learning. Any ability beyond this threshold will be robustly supported through the curriculum. There are no pre-requisites for first year subjects, and any intensive use of IT or technologies will be adequately supported. Certain subjects have more specific requirements and demands, such as fieldwork or travelling, which are clearly outlined in the Handbook's subject description. |
However, the University is dedicated to provide support to those with special requirements. The Faculty Disability Contact Officer works with students, the University Disability Liaison Unit and teaching staff to assist students with their special requirements, with a particular focus on accommodations for in-class and examination assessment tasks. Further details on the disability support scheme can be found at http://www.services.unimelb.edu.au/disability.
|Further Study:||Arts offers many opportunities for further study. A postgraduate diploma, leading on to a masters degree or PhD, can add vocational and/or research skills to your undergraduate arts degree and increase your employment options. Arts graduates also use postgraduate study to explore in greater depth and detail subjects they found interesting during their undergraduate study or to study a completely new field of knowledge.|
