|Description:||Classics will introduce you to the history, cultures, languages and literatures of some of the most important civilisations in world history. Whether you are interested in the archaeology of the Roman Empire, the art of ancient Athens, the drama of Euripides, the poetry of Homer and Virgil, or the history of Greece and Rome, you will be able to tailor your programme to your interests and ambitions. Classics is a wide term which refers to the study of all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman civilisation. It also includes the study of those civilisations that the Greeks and Romans came into contact with, as well as the history of the study of Classics itself, and the reception of classical heritage in the modern world.
You will learn from our range of expert teaching staff, which is drawn from many European countries and maintains strong international links. We offer a wide choice of programmes, with particular strengths in ancient history, Greek, Latin and classical archaeology. No previous knowledge is required to study ancient history or classical archaeology and it is possible to study Greek or Latin from scratch and to progress to the highest level by the end of your programme. You will be able to choose from an exceptionally wide range of courses in Classics and its related disciplines and there is considerable scope for personal initiative in your choice of courses. You may choose option courses from subjects as diverse as astronomy, law and criminology, and the humanities.
