The Roman Studies breadth track surveys a thousand years of Roman political, social and cultural history (500 BCE - 500 CE). Ancient Rome's highly advanced society represents one of the first of the multicultural civilisations of the pre-industrial era and its study therefore offers many timeless insights into our own increasingly cosmopolitan world.

What is a Breadth Track?

A breadth track is a sequence of three or more subjects (taken as part of a Melbourne Bachelor degree) that progressively develops knowledge and skills relevant to a coherent domain, theme, topic or issue. It is a suggested set of subjects, rather than a requirement.
