Course Summary

This course encompasses the history, culture, archaeology, art, philosophy and linguistics of classical antiquity and the study of original texts and artefacts. You can either specialise in a particular field or retain the breadth with which the course starts. The Faculty's facilities include a well-stocked library and our own Museum of Classical Archaeology. In addition, you have access to the holdings of the Fitzwilliam Museum, where some classes take place. There's a thriving student society and the renowned Cambridge Greek Play, produced in the original language, is regularly staged by a professional director. The three-year course is usually for students with A Level/IB Higher Level Latin (regardless of whether they have Greek). We offer an Intensive Greek Programme for those with little/no Greek. The four-year course is for those with little or no Latin and offers a preliminary year which focuses on Latin language and Roman culture. Years 2, 3 and 4 are identical to the three years of the three-year degree. Employers have a high opinion of Classicists as potential employees because they're hard-working, articulate, accurate and efficient, take new tasks in their stride and can master situations intelligently. Some graduates take advantage of the specialist opportunities open to them and do research and teaching in schools and universities, or work in archives, libraries and museums. But most go into other careers - in law, the media, accountancy, the Civil Service, industry and business.
