Course Information

The achievements of our ancient ancestors, as well as the challenges they encountered and the ways in which they responded to such challenges, provide valuable lessons for each and every one of us. With a broad and rich understanding of ancient times, we can better understand who we are today and where we are going in the future.

Macquarie’s world-leading Bachelor of Ancient History – the longest-running and broadest of its kind in Australia – allows you to immerse yourself in the culture and languages of the ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern worlds, both on campus and at archaeological dig sites overseas.
