On successful completion of the course, students should be able to demonstrate in course work and in the written degree examination:
- that they have a good understanding of the essentials of Greek morphology and syntax;
- that they have basic skills in translating and understanding Greek literary texts.
-that they have the ability to apply these skills to deepen their understanding of the Ancient World.
In addition, they will have improved their linguistic abilities in general, and their analytical skills.
|Graduate Attributes and Skills
||Students taking Greek 1Ha will attend class with Greek 1A, but will be required in addition to produce an assignment that conforms in length and quality to other honours course requirements. This assignment uses their developing linguistic knowledge to deepen their understanding of their main degree subject, whether that is Classical Literature, Ancient History or Classical Archaeology. The assignment will thus be one that combines language skills with the other skills acquired during the degree, the one reinforcing and developing the other.
