Greek and Latin papers offer both linguistic training and the experience of reading the major works of Greek and Roman literature, drama, history and philosophy in the original languages. The languages are also an essential tool for postgraduate work in Classics.

You are not able to major in Greek for any qualification. However, Classics is available as a subject of study for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Arts with Honours (BA(Hons)), Master of Arts (Coursework) (MA(Coursework)), Master of Arts (Thesis) (MA(Thesis)) and the Postgraduate Diploma in Arts Subjects (PGDipArts).
