A Level Classical Civilisation is an excellent choice regardless of the other chosen subjects. It provides students with an education which far exceeds the limits of A level exam preparation and helps them develop a sophisticated way of thinking as undergraduates and as professionals. The subject is highly appreciated by university admission officers and would make a UCAS application stand out.
Certain subjects are particularly good combinations. English Literature is the most obvious. Students studying both subjects benefit from similarities in the way they are taught and the way texts are analysed and evaluated. With two units devoted to classical theatre, Drama is also a popular combination. The study of Classical Civilisation involves the development of an insight into the history and society of the classica period. This makes the subject an excellent companion to History, Politics, Sociology and Psychology. Classical Civilisation can also add variety and an interesting element of the humanities to a course otherwise based on Maths and Sciences.
