| 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 and the more advanced aspects of Greek morphology and syntax;
- that they have an increasing fluency in translating and understanding Greek literary texts, both seen and unseen.
-that they have a basic understanding of literary critical issues in Greek 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, and their literary appreciation.
|Graduate Attributes and Skills
||Students of Greek 1HB will attend class with students of Greek 1B, but will be required in addition to produce an assignment which conforms to the requirements of other honours classes. 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.
