Level 3 Classical Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms K. Brown


The standards and topics offered in this course may be altered at the discretion of the Head of Department.

In Level 3 Classical Studies at Westlake Girls High School the focus is on the civilisation of ancient Rome. Topics include: the religious and philosophical belief systems of Rome, the epic poetry of Virgil and the architecture and sculpture of Imperial Rome.

NZQA Rationale: Classical Studies is the study of the people, places, and events of the classical world and how they influence the modern world. Classical Studies is an interdisciplinary subject: students engage with Literature, Languages, Art, History, Science, Technology, Religion and Philosophy. Students explore community, cultural identity, values and perspectives and think critically about human behaviour and relationships to appreciate the civilisations of ancient Greece and Rome, understand the past and the present and to imagine possible futures.
