Our BA Classical Studies 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 also choose optional units from a wide range of topics in ancient literature, history and culture, some of which may be taken in other departments such as archaeology and anthropology or theology. You may choose to study an ancient language, such as Greek, Latin or Sanskrit. There is also the possibility of study abroad in your second year. In your third year you choose seminar-based special subjects and write a dissertation on your own specialist research project.
