Our teaching and research covers a wide range of topics, from art and archaeology, to Greek and Latin studies, to mythology and society.
We offer papers in Classical Studies, as well as language papers in Greek and Latin. We also offer a range of more specialised papers in such areas as Greek and Roman society, Cicero, Alexander the Great, ancient philosophy and Classical art and archaeology, myth, and literature.
Greek and Latin
The Greek and Latin languages are taught from beginners' level on a reading-based approach, leading to the reading of texts from major authors at higher levels.
The Department has a strong research culture, with particular expertise in Alexander the Great, Cicero, Greek religion, Roman religion and politics, and the archaeology of Roman Spain.
New paper 2017
The Department of Classics is happy to offer one new paper as part of the curriculum from 2017.
Some of our graduates have gone on to do great things with their Classics degrees.
