Classics and English

**Why Warwick?** We’re a world-leading university with the highest academic and research standards. Today more than 25,000 students thrive across four faculties, which feature over 70 research centres and institutes. We’re a constant presence in the rankings of the UK’s and the world’s greatest universities, and the most targeted institution nationally by the UK’s top 100 employers (The Graduate Market in 2017, High Fliers Research Ltd). All of this means you’ll be welcomed to a safe, energetic and cosmopolitan campus with flexible, well-equipped study spaces to help you stretch yourself personally, professionally and academically. Whether you want to be a front-runner in a fast-moving graduate job market, or to make a difference and change the world, we want you here. **The course** If you have an interest in both Classics and English, and have studied either Latin or Ancient Greek to A Level (or the equivalent), this course will enable you to study classical antiquity (its literature, art, material culture and thought) together with its reception in English literature through the Western tradition. We are one of the few universities in the UK to offer a combined degree that treats the two subjects as a continuum. English may be taken with either Latin or Greek language, but you may also choose from a wide menu of different modules taught by renowned experts in their fields from both the Departments of Classics and English. The course examines the multiple and ever-evolving interactions between the artistic production of classical antiquity and English literature, from Shakespeare to contemporary poets, novelists and dramatists. Many of the modules, for example Epic into Novel (an optional core first year English module), Humanism and Early Modern Latin Texts, and Ancient Greek Theatre (two honours Classics modules), encourage interdisciplinary thinking between the two inter-related fields. You will become aware of broad and subtle trends in the development of Western literature, and acquire the knowledge and critical skills to make your own connections between genres, authors, themes, concepts, theories and historical moments.
