JH Classical Literature and Civilisation Modules Year 1

First Year

Compulsory modules

Project A (10 credits)

Students taking this project meet weekly in small groups with their Personal Tutor to cover a topic of their tutor’s choice. This will typically be related to the overall goals of their degree programme. Group sizes will typically not exceed twelve; students will be expected to prepare material ahead of classes, either individually or in groups, and to take active part in discussion in class. Sessions are led by the tutor in the first instance, but may include student-led elements.

Project B (10 credits)

 Students taking this project meet weekly in small groups to cover a topic prescribed by the instructor. This may be more or less closely related to the individual student’s degree programme; where options are oversubscribed, priority will be given to students on the most relevant programmes. Group sizes will typically not exceed twelve; students will be expected to prepare material ahead of classes, either individually or in groups, and to take active part in discussion in class. Sessions are led by the tutor in the first instance, but will include student-led elements. The module is intended to reinforce and build on the skills and understanding of university life covered in Tutorial Project A. In addition, students will be required to give group presentations on prepared topics. Instructors are encouraged also to organize an out-of-classroom activity, such as a visit to the Barber Institute, Eton Myers collection, Rare Books, or similar.
