About BA English and Classical Studies

Our Joint Honours English and Classical Studies degree combines investigation of the ancient Greco-Roman world with the study of works from all periods of English literature, many of which reflect or reanimate ancient texts and topics.

Both halves of the course give you the opportunity to follow your own interests and particular enthusiasms through optional units. You can choose to learn Latin or Ancient Greek as well as Old English (Anglo-Saxon) at beginner level. You may also study ancient arts, such as epic or drama, alongside their more modern forms in literature written in English.

Your dissertation in year three can draw on both degree subjects to discuss a topic that concerns both the ancient world and English literature.
