Course summary

Classics explores the languages and literatures of the ancient Greeks and Romans. German literary culture has been profoundly influenced by the reading of such works since the Middle Ages. On this programme, you’ll learn the German language while studying literature and other cultural forms, such as film and theatre. You'll engage with significant works that demonstrate the classical influence, for example by the great German writers Goethe and Schiller. You'll have the opportunity to learn Greek or Latin and to study these two ancient civilisations in many different contexts (political, religious, philosophical). German universities have a very strong tradition in the teaching of Classics, so you will have an excellent choice of destinations for Year 3, which you'll spend studying, teaching or working in a German-speaking country.
