Welcome to Classics, Ancient History, and Egyptology

We are passionate about ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt, and want to share our research and knowledge with you.

As a tight-knit community, we aim to inspire learning about ancient cultures and languages and bring them to life. Our high-quality teaching seeks to develop and encourage our students’ own critical, research, and interpersonal skills.

We pride ourselves on fostering and nurturing ideas and helping students to grow, inside the classroom and out: through group presentations, teaching and volunteering, and placements at our in-house museum (the Egypt Centre), as well as field trips, blogposts, student publications, and website design.

At Swansea, we are fully committed to public engagement with museums, heritage bodies, and schools. Our students benefit from our links with such organisations and the ways we prepare them for the workplace by encouraging creativity and innovation, leading by the example of our research. Our former students are employed in a wide range of different fields.
