Course summary

This programme offers the opportunity to develop expertise in two ancient languages simultaneously, while developing a sophisticated critical approach to the ancient world through essay work. Students will focus on Greek in years two and three, following more modules in this language.

Degree benefits

  • UCL is ranked in the top six universities in the UK for Classics by the Guardian University Guide 2021.

  • You will have access to an unparalleled range of options, from Roman Love Poetry to Greek Palaeography, from Ancient Greek Religion to Roman Epic.

  • UCL has excellent library facilities, and is ideally situated close to world-renowned resources such as the British Museum, the British Library, and the Institute of Classical Studies.

  • The lively student-run Classical Society organises an annual Classics play (a Greek or Latin drama in translation), shown at the nearby Bloomsbury Theatre, as well as other events.

Your learning

You will be taught through lectures, seminars and small-group work. Some sessions involve direct study of artefacts, including access to the collections of the British Museum.

Assessment

Most modules combine both continuous assessment and end-of-year written examinations, although a few modules are assessed solely by one or other of these methods.

Careers

Knowledge of languages such as Latin and Greek will help you to develop mental agility and versatility, equipping you with the ability (amongst other things) to learn modern languages with comparative ease, opening up a wider range of possibilities in the future.

The Greek with Latin BA is a rigorous and broad-ranging degree which qualifies you for a remarkably wide variety of jobs. The Classical Society hosts regular talks from former students which may help guide you in your future career choices.

Career destinations in recent years have included: graduate study, teaching, law, computing, accountancy, marketing, banking, music (classical and popular), acting, the media, business, the voluntary sector, local government and politics.
