About BA Classical Studies

This degree offers you the flexibility to follow your own interests in classical civilisation by combining core units on Greco-Roman literature and culture with more specialised units on topics such as ancient literature, philosophy, history, art and archaeology.

In your first two years you will explore core topics in the literary and artistic culture of the ancient Greco-Roman world and consider its legacy in the modern world. You will choose optional units from a range of topics in ancient literature, history and culture and you may also choose to study Greek or Latin. There is the possibility of studying abroad in your second year.

In your third year you choose seminar-based subjects and write a dissertation on your own specialist research project. You will also plan, promote and execute a project aimed at presenting the ancient world to the wider public, with a member of staff acting as adviser.
