Starting in January 2023, CAS will be offering a range of evening classes, covering ancient languages and non-language topics. Theses classes can be studied individually or (in the case of our Greek and Latin courses) studied sequentially to take learners from an absolute beginner level to a predetermined ability level. Courses last 10 Weeks in the case of language classes and 8 weeks in the case of non-language options.
All classes will be delivered online (Zoom), with an expectation of some self-directed study between sessions. The cost of our courses will include access to tutors by email and a range of pre-prepared resources for use during classes. Textbooks may be recommended by our tutors, but are not compulsory purchases.
Term Two will take place between 3rd April and 11th June 2023, with our first term line-up as follows:
- Post-Beginners’ Latin (10wks)
- Post-Beginners’ Ancient Greek (10wks)
- Post-Beginners’ Middle Egyptian (10wks)
- Ancient Slavery in its Mediterranean Context (8wks)
- Magic in the Ancient Greek World (8wks)
*Please note that owing to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to offer our course on Sexual Violence in Ancient Greece & Rome in this upcoming term*
