Level 3 Classical Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms F. Crowley

This course studies the civilisations of classical Greece and Rome. The course incorporates history, literature and art from these periods, most of which is the very foundation of our culture and society in present day New Zealand. It involves the study of Alexander the Great and his conquest of the Persian Empire, the founding of the Roman Empire by the Emperor Augustus, the Colosseum and other famous structures and art works. 

Classical Studies enables students to think critically about the world around them, make links between the past and the influence it has on them today, gather, classify and analyse evidence, judge opposing opinions and present conclusions appropriately.
