Do you love Latin? Are you a fan of Roman literature? Would you like to further your mastery of the language by studying original texts as well as the artefacts, ideas and past-deeds of ancient Rome? If so, then this course is for you. You will have already studied classical Latin to A-level standard and are now looking to hone your expertise in the language and literature of ancient Rome.

Over three years you’ll become a specialist in both the language and literature of the ancient Romans with the opportunity to add Greek into your skillset too. The remainder of your time will be spent studying subjects available to Classics and Classical Studies students to broaden your horizons into Roman politics, economics and gender issues.
