Overview and Aims:

Experience – whether it is walking through a Mediterranean landscape, sitting in a classical theatre, or marveling at the exquisite beauty or technical skills behind the pottery and sculpture in a museum – is a key way to bring the ancient world vividly to life. This module gives you the opportunity to engage with and experience a region of the Mediterranean world through participation in a structured study tour.

The tour is undertaken over the summer period prior to the academic year to which the credits contribute. Students are required to keep a reflective diary of their work, and then to complete a research paper during the academic year on a topic arising from the study tour.
Note that this optional module requires prior approval from the module organizer.

Learning Outcomes

On successful conclusion of this module, students should be able to:

  • Demonstrate familiarity with the landscapes, sites and monuments, and museums visited on the tour
  • Record and reflect on all of the above in a diary format
  • Plan and execute an independent research paper on a topic arising from the study tour
