Department of Ancient History / Telemachus (Tele's Angels) Ancient History Mentor Program

Department of Ancient History, Macquarie University

Ancient History offers over eighty units for study at undergraduate level and covers the antecedents of western civilisation in ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Ancient Near East and the Graeco-Roman world. Greek history is studied from Homer to the Hellenistic cultures under the Roman empire (including Judaism and early Christianity) and Roman history from the Republic to the Late Empire, the Silk Road and the Medieval and Byzantine period. Egyptian history is taught from the Predynastic period up to that of the Ramesside period. Egypt's later history merges with the Greek, Roman and Coptic streams.

Telemachus Ancient History Mentor Program

The Telemachus Ancient History Mentor Program (or, as we are more informally known, Tele's Angels) was founded in 2002 by a group of second-year undergraduate students after they observed the need for greater support, resources and communication for and amongst first-year students.

The transition from secondary education or the workforce to university life can be a difficult one. With this in mind, the Ancient History Department is one of the only Departments in the entire University that offers a comprehensive Mentoring Program, run BY students, FOR students.

The program seeks to offer free academic and personal assistance to all first-year Ancient History students on a one-to-one basis, as well as providing networking opportunities between students and staff. Most importantly, we encourage students to become involved in the Ancient History community here at Macquarie University, and to relax and enjoy their studies!

The Mentors are all passionate and committed Ancient History students at various stages of their journeys through higher education, so they can easily relate to the needs of first-year students.
