Classics has been an important part of the University's history since its foundation in 1451. It includes the study of art, history, language, literature, material culture, philosophy and society.
Today, our considerable expertise spans:
- Greek and Roman art and archaeology
- Greek and Roman drama and epic
- late Latin literature; and
- Greek and Roman history.
The diversity of our approach means that if you choose to study with us, you will develop a broad range of intellectual and transferable skills that employers are looking for. Our final year undergraduates report the highest levels of student satisfaction in the UK, according to the 2009 National Student Survey.
