Our Classics degree focuses on the study and appreciation of a wide spectrum of Greek and Roman literature, read both in English translation and in the original Greek and Latin. Languages are taught at all levels and you will be assigned to the language level that reflects your own prior experience of Greek or Latin. Some classes concentrate upon building and developing language and translation skills, while others focus upon literary criticism and engagement with the text. In years one and two you will study both Greek and Latin. You will also choose optional units from literature, philosophy, art, and political, social or cultural history. Some of these units may be taken in collaboration with other departments. There is the possibility of study abroad in the second year. In your third year you choose seminar-based special subjects and you will write a dissertation on your own specialist research project.
