Course summary

Classical Literature gives you the chance to explore some of the most important texts in western literature. You’ll combine core and optional modules to appreciate works by writers such as Homer, Virgil, Aeschylus, Apuleius, Aristotle and Ovid, all read in English translation, offering a window into Ancient Greek and Roman culture and history. You'll explore poetry, prose, comedy and tragedy plays in the ancient theatre, and discover how later writers from the ancient world to the present day have been inspired by the classics.With Philosophy at Leeds you'll explore fundamental questions about how we understand the world: what’s the difference between belief and knowledge? Why are we here? How do we know what we know – and can we ever know anything at all? You’ll learn how to construct arguments and study key topics such as ethics and logic, as well as specialist knowledge in topics from ancient and moral philosophy to the ethics of life and death, philosophy of language or aesthetics.
