Course description

Classical Studies is a highly flexible programme which offers a broad-based study of the culture and history of the Greek and Roman worlds. It allows all students the opportunity to take either Greek or Latin (or both) at any level including beginners' courses, though you can take the programme without studying language. Students also take specialist courses, which may include ancient literature, history, religion, philosophy, art and archaeology. There is a wide range of styles of teaching, including lectures, seminars, small-group tutorials and virtual seminars via the web.

Flexible Honours may allow you to study an additional arts, languages or cultures subject. Find out more here
