Why study Classics and Ancient History at Manchester?

Explore the art, culture, history, language and literature of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations – integral to the development of the modern world.

Course units cover topics such as women in antiquity, Latin love poetry, Greek mythology, ancient philosophy, classical archaeology and the Roman Republic. Expand your historical and cultural studies even further with topics ranging from Prehistoric Britain to Ancient Egypt.

You can combine your study of Latin with subjects such as Linguistics, English Literature or a modern European language as a Joint Honours degree, or combine study of Ancient History with either Archaeology or History.
