Year 12 Classical Studies (12CLS)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss R. Pedersen

Level Two Classical Studies is the holistic study of the ancient Greek civilisation. It covers philosophy, art, society, politics, drama, literature and history. This course provides a natural link to the study of the Roman civilisation at NCEA Level Three. 

 Our focus in Year 12 is on Greek society, particularly history and literature. We study Homer’s Iliad, look at the development of democracy and how it influences us today and the daily life of people living in Athens. 

 It must be emphasised that this is an academic subject in which the development of research, analysis of primary evidence and processing of information is demanded to achieve. This course provides opportunity to achieve 20 NCEA Level Two credits, with two internally assessed and two externally assessed standards.

Pre-requisites

At least 14 Level One Classical Studies, English or History credits.
