Course description

Joint-honours Latin and English is based on the study of Latin language and literature in each of the three years of study, pursued in parallel to the full range of English studies (options include writings from Middle English, the Renaissance, historical and contemporary English Language, and cultural theory). If you offer Latin as one of your A-level subjects, you will continue your study of the language on Route 1; if you have not studied the subject before then you will begin your study of it on Route 2. Where appropriate, texts for literary and historical course units are studied in Latin. There is a wide range of styles of teaching, including lectures, seminars, small-group tutorials and virtual seminars via the web.


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2016 will be £9,000 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £15,500 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
