Classical Studies - Classical Studies includes the study of Greek and Roman literature alongside social and cultural history, philosophy, religion and art. The course encourages new ways of seeing the classical and modern worlds. All Classical Studies modules use English texts. Classical Studies at St Andrews allows you to discover and debate the nature of Athenian democracy, the power of Greek tragedy, the purpose of ancient erotic fiction, the imposing beauty of Roman sculpture or the twists and turns of Platonic dialogue.

Modern History - Modern History will teach you to analyse historical events from the past five-hundred years from a present day context. The course takes a broad view of political and social developments and allows you flexibility in your studies. You can choose topics ranging from the 15th to the 21st century, studying British, European, Middle Eastern, South Asian, East Asian or American history.
