The Department teaches three different subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate level:

  • Greek and Roman Civilization
  • Greek
  • Latin

Each of these subjects may be taken as part of the BA (Joint Honours) degree. Students who opt to spend a year studying abroad are awarded a BA (International) degree. Most modules forming part of the undergraduate programme are also available to visiting international students.

Postgraduates may choose to apply for the one-year MA in Classical Studies, the two-year MA in Classics (which includes the study of an ancient language), or the one-year MA in Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Thought, which is taught jointly between Ancient Classics and Philosophy.

The Department also offers a PhD programme for suitably qualified candidates. If you are considering applying for a PhD in Ancient Classics, you are encouraged first to contact the Director of Research and Postgraduate Studies, Dr Michael Williams, in order to discuss possible topics and supervision arrangements.
