Level 2 Classical Studies/Art History
The Classical Studies component of this course focuses on the Art discipline of the Classical Studies Year 12 course, as this is a combination subject in which the rest of the course is drawn from the Art History field. Students study the architecture and sculpture of Ancient Greece. They complete an internal standard on recognising the influence of Classical architecture on Auckland landmarks.
The course covers the study of two plays by the Attic Old Comedy and Greek Vases in terms of their significance in recording Greek social and political values. Students study two Roman topics; Roman Religion and “The Aeneid“ by Virgil. These four topics form the basis of the course and each year these units are interchanged according to the interest level of the students.
