Course summary

This four-year programme includes a foundation year that leads directly into the three-year course. It provides an excellent route to a degree in classics if you do not have the typical entry qualifications.

Immerse yourself in ancient cultures which lie at the very heart of western civilisation and resonate throughout our modern world. Explore the classical world from political, social and cultural perspectives, and study ancient texts in their original languages.

The aim of the foundation year is to prepare you for your classics degree. As you progress, each stage builds on your prior learning:

Foundation year: gain a thorough grounding in study at degree level. Core modules will develop key skills to support your learning.

Careers for BA Classics with Foundation Graduates

94% of graduates from the Department of Classics are in work or further study within six months of graduating (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey, 2016-17).

Your classics degree will help you to develop a range of transferable skills, from critical thinking and communication, to adaptability and the ability to understand different cultures. Specific careers and employability training is also built into your degree.

Studying Latin and Greek also demonstrates linguistic flair and provides a firm foundation for learning other languages.
