Course summary

The Classics (Greek & Latin) BA embraces the study of all aspects of the cultures of Greece and Rome by developing your skills in Ancient Greek and Latin languages. If you have no prior knowledge of either Ancient Greek or Latin, you can still join this programme as we offer innovative pathways to support your rapid acquisition of practical skills in these languages, allowing you to reach an advanced level by Year 3. Students who join another programme in the Classics Department at King's and take Ancient Greek and Latin language modules in Year 1 (they need to have some knowledge of one ancient language already, as they cannot take two beginners’ modules) have the option to transfer to the Classics BA in Year 2, provided that they attain an overall result of over 70% in one of these two language modules.

Key benefits

  • Top five for Classics in the UK (QS World University Rankings 2018), our Department is renowned for its quality of teaching, student experience and cutting-edge research.
  • King’s Classics Department is one of the largest in the UK, with unique coverage from the Bronze Age to Modern Greece.
  • The Department stages an annual Greek play in the original language, providing students with an opportunity to experience and participate in the Greek dramatic tradition.
  • Collaborations with the British Museum and other cultural institutions, which are incorporated into our undergraduate teaching.
  • Graduates go into a wide range of professions, including law, government service, journalism, teaching and the financial services industries.

Course Aims

  • The Classics (Greek & Latin) BA is an interdisciplinary course that will allow you to explore aspects of the classical world through the development of your understanding of Ancient Greek and Latin, and by reading ancient texts in their original form.
  • You will also be encouraged to research the many intellectual and political ways in which the Classical world connects to the modern world in which we live.
  • The diverse range of study module options will offer enormous flexibility to your study pathway. You will learn to think critically and independently about the subjects you encounter in your studies and acquire a range of skills that will support your intellectual, vocational and personal development.
  • The course is comprised of 360 credits in total and is studied over three years. Each year, you will study a set number of modules directly related to Greek and Latin, and then choose from a wide selection of optional interdepartmental modules allowing you to widely explore all aspects of the cultures of Greece and Rome.


Our graduates go on to work in a range of professions, including law, banking, the civil service, information technology, librarianship, education, heritage industries, the media, journalism and the performing arts, while others choose to stay and pursue postgraduate qualifications at King’s.
