Classical literature had always been a private interest that Sam James wanted to bring into his professional life. Sam believes he has been successful in doing so, all thanks to his master’s study in Classics and Ancient History at Reading.
The first main highlight of his time at Reading was studying the Approaches to Classics module.
“We looked at ancient philosophy, which is my particular interest. We looked at ancient law, modern reception, Indo Europeans today, gaining a strong oversight and in- depth study.”
San’s other particular highlight was studying ancient languages.
“I learned Latin and Greek and I had an awful lot of fun. There were so many pieces of knowledge I picked up as we discussed authors and read classical texts. Spending time at the Ure Museum was also a very valuable experience."
