This accessible and rewarding course explores classical literature, history, culture, philosophy, art and archaeology through key places and periods – including Pompeii, Roman Britain, Classical Athens, and Republican and Imperial Rome – with options to study ancient Greek and Latin. Studying classical studies will also enhance your understanding of many aspects of the modern world, by providing new perspectives on contemporary societies and cultures.
