|Graduate Attributes and Skills
||Students taking this class for honours credit will be required to produce an assignment which conforms to Honours class standards, in addition to all other work for the class, TBA with the course organiser. 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.
