Course summary

If you choose to study Classics, you will study both Greek and Latin language and literature, as well as and the societies of Greece and Rome. We offer an exciting programme combining the best academic rigour and critical analysis with the latest approaches to ancient literature. You will acquire important, transferable skills for later life and employment; including an awareness of the way language systems work, and an understanding of some of the most brilliant, complex works in literature. By the end of your degree, you will confidently be able to unpack the meaning of all manner of texts, from political speeches to advertising slogans.In your first two years, you will develop comprehension, translation and critical skills through the study of set texts (to and from the classical languages). Modules in literature, history and culture will give you a broad perspective, and provide a good foundation for third-year work. Students of Classics study both Greek and Latin and the societies of Greece and Rome, whereas students of Latin concentrate on the language and society of Rome. A ‘fasttrack’ module is also available to facilitate accelerated learning of Greek in the first year.In your final year you will study literary genres in depth, choosing typically from Greek Tragedy, Hellenistic Poetry or Latin Epic. You will then have the choice of other ‘special subjects’, one of which may be a dissertation.
