About this course

  • The course, English and Classical Studies degree combines an investigation of the ancient Greco-Roman world with the study of major works from all periods of English literature, many of which reflect or reanimate ancient texts and topics.
  • Both halves of the course give you the opportunity to follow your own interests and particular enthusiasms through optional units.
  • You can choose to learn Latin or Ancient Greek as well as Old English (Anglo-Saxon) at beginner level, and may also study ancient arts, such as epic or drama, alongside their more modern forms in English.
  • Your dissertation in year three will draw on both degree subjects to discuss a topic that concerns both the ancient world and English literature.
