Classical Studies

The focus of this degree is on the literature and culture of the ancient civilisations of Greece and Rome. It draws on the strengths at Kent in the study of drama, mythology, literature and ancient philosophy, while providing the opportunity to study the ancient languages Latin and Greek. It also allows you to connect Greece and Rome with the wider world, whether Egypt or Britain. The civilisations of Europe and the Middle East grew out of the classical world so it is not surprising that it is still relevant today, and enriching to explore and study. Canterbury was a Roman city and a centre of early Christianity, which is reflected in its museums, including the Canterbury Roman Museum, and its three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is also well-placed to allow you to make visits to other sites and museums locally, as well as those located in London and Paris. The programme is offered by the Department of Classical & Archaeological Studies, and benefits from a diverse range of staff expertise. You build a perspective of classical cultures as living traditions, with the option of learning ancient languages.
