Course summary

Are you fascinated by ancient Greece and Rome? Do you love reading and thinking for yourself? If you also have an A level in Latin and want to study both Latin and Greek language and literature, then this varied and interdisciplinary degree is for you.

Taught in the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology, you will have the opportunity to explore the classical civilisations of Greece and Rome, as well as of Egypt, Ancient Western Asia and the Byzantine Empire, in a range of optional modules. You will encounter the classical world in all its diversity and explore its literature, culture, religion and history, and the many ways in which classical antiquity lives on in our world today. You will gain expertise in both Greek and Latin and, by reading in the original languages, you will be able to understand Greek and Latin texts in greater depth.
