Program Description

Through the three years of the degree, you’ll be taking Latin and Greek modules at the appropriate level out of Beginner’s, Intermediate, Further, and Advanced, depending on your prior experience. Further and Advanced levels read increasing amounts of prose and verse literature in the original languages.

In the first year, you’ll be doing two modules each of Latin and Greek, unless you’ve done neither before, in which case you’ll take 2 modules of either one at Beginner’s level and start the other in your second year. At Further and Advanced level, you’ll be reading texts with scholars who research their language and meaning: for instance, you might be reading a speech by Cicero or a comedy by Aristophanes with a staff member who published an article about it. You could also study either Greek or Latin in a Joint Honours degree with Ancient History or Classical Civilisation.

Note:
Fees for full time Undergraduate EU/International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.
