NCEA Level 2 Classical Studies

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs R. Forrest

In 2023, Level 2 Classical Studies focuses on topics within three areas of the classical Greek world; literature, art and history. Topics will be:

  • Greek Social Life, Mythology, Religion and its influence on modern society
  • A selection of Greek art and architecture

There will also be a research component (2 papers) where we will look at a significant ancient event (The Eruption of Mt Vesuvius and the destruction/preservation of Pompeii) as well as comparing Greek Mythology to modern representations of the stories (e.g. Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief or Hercules. This component is internally assessed and is worth 10 credits. 

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.

A personal device is preferred for this subject.

Recommended Prior Learning
