Course summary

Many of the basic concepts underlying Western society were expressed for the first time in ancient Greek or Latin. Together with English, they are the language of many highly influential literary works. Studying English Literature and Classics helps you to understand the modern world, as well as shedding light on the past.This programme aims to develop your critical, analytic, linguistic, and creative skills by engaging with a broad range of texts and a variety of approaches to reading.You will explore the cultural contexts of writing in English from the late Middle Ages to the present, and the highly influential scholarship and literature of the classical world. You can opt to take a Greek, Latin or non-language pathway through Classics from Year 1. In your honours years (Year 3 and 4), you will study research-led courses selected on the basis of your own interests within both subjects.**Why Edinburgh?**We are the oldest department of English Literature in the UK, and one of the longest established in the world.Edinburgh is the first UNESCO World City of Literature, a fantastic literary city which many greats of English and Scottish literature have called home.
