Study Tour of the Mediterranean

Module code: AR7566

This module is focused on a short research tour in the Mediterranean held around Easter each year, where both Greek and Roman material can be studied on site and in major museums. It involves extensive prior preparation through materials supplied as text books and online and offering various contexts for the visit, as well as follow-up work in assignments and online seminars. All costs for this module except initial travel to the study area and some meals are included in the programme fee. This is a great chance to meet your tutors and co-students face to face. NB: this optional module may not run every year, subject to student demand. Please contact the Distance Learning Hub for more information in each year.
