Course summary

By combining Classical Studies and Philosophy in equal parts you'll have the opportunity to study many aspects of Greece and Rome in the Classical period alongside ancient and modern philosophy. With roots of philosophical theory anchored in the ancient world, Philosophy and Classical Studies make an excellent combination of subjects.If you are captivated by classical literature and philosophy and are keen to understand more about ancient history and classical archaeology, Classical Studies is ideal.Classical Studies offers a great deal of choice in subjects related to the ancient world, immersing you in lots of aspects of ancient Greece and Rome – its literature, history, philosophy and archaeology – even its languages; Greek and Latin can be studied at whatever level you’re at and for one, two or three years.As a student of Classical Studies you will be part of our Classics Department, where the quality of research that informs our teaching and a friendly, individual approach which shapes the way we guide our students combine to create an unbeaten academic experience.At Royal Holloway we have a unique approach to Philosophy that looks beyond the narrow confines of the Anglo-American analytic or the European tradition of philosophy focus on both traditions, their relationship and connections between them. The result has been the creation of a truly interdisciplinary and collaborative programme that brings together academic staff from departments across the university.With the opportunity to examine (amongst other things) the mind and consciousness, aesthetics and morals, the self and others, the range of subjects available to Philosophy students at Royal Holloway guarantees that there will be something on offer that really engages you during your time with us.- Optional Latin or Greek at beginners’ or advanced level- Pursue the literature, history, philosophy or archaeology of the ancient world- Consider classical philosophy from the perspective of both philosopher and classicist- Like you, many academic staff work in both disciplines- Philosophy spans ancient and contemporary traditions
