Classics is the study of the language, literature, history, art and culture of the ancient Greeks and Romans.
Our range of Classics degree programmes allows you to focus on various aspects of the classical world: the Greek and Latin languages, classical literature, ancient history and classical art and archaeology.
Classics can be combined with a range of subjects as part of a joint honours programme, including English literature, Philosophy and History.
Courses are taught through a combination of lectures, tutorials and some practical exercises.
You will be assessed by exams and coursework.
Classics graduates often progress to further study or careers in academia, teaching and museum work. Previous graduates have also gone on to work in accountancy, finance, IT, publishing, the Civil Service or law (after completing further qualifications).
You will study at our recently refurbished teaching and study facilities, located within the University’s Central Area. You will have access to the School’s new Student Research Room and subject collections, as well as all of the University’s libraries and computing facilities.
There are opportunities to study abroad and to join fieldwork projects overseas.
