Classical Studies (Combined)

University of St Andrews

Content

The University of St Andrews has been a centre for Classical studies since its foundation in 1413, and the School of Classics continues to build on its reputation for both teaching and research. Classics courses are wide-ranging as students can journey from Archaic Greece to the Late Roman Empire, all around the Mediterranean world and beyond.

The study of Classics explores concepts and issues which are fundamental still today. Looking back at ancient political, social and cultural life allows students to consider their modern selves. Classics courses combine the study of Greek and Latin literature and language, immersing students in two literatures of enormous richness that have provided inspiration for so many areas of later western literature, culture and thought.

Classical Studies courses explore all aspects of the Greek and Roman world, including not just literature but also art, architecture, philosophy, religion and responses to the Greeks and Romans from the Renaissance to the modern world.
