Classics focuses on the study of the Greek and Roman worlds, ranging from the earliest Greek literature to the fall of the Roman Empire. But it also covers the way ancient culture has been received and interpreted ever since. This degree is the broadest approach to this interdisciplinary field, incorporating the study of history, literature, language, art, philosophy, archaeology and other areas. You’ll explore Greek and Roman culture through our core modules, which will introduce key texts such as Homer’s Iliad and Virgil’s Aeneid and key events in ancient history. But you’ll also shape your degree to suit you, choosing from optional modules on a wide range of different topics. You could study Greek art and Roman comedy, the ruins of Pompeii, or how classical religion and myth have been used in 21st century texts, video games, film, and fiction. We study texts in translation, but if you want to learn or continue with an ancient language we also offer Ancient Greek and Latin.
