Classics (Combined)

University of St Andrews

Content

Latin and Greek are the gateways to two literatures of enormous richness and sophistication that have profoundly shaped modern satire, history-writing, love poetry, politics and much else. To study them at university is not just a linguistic challenge, but a challenge to understand what the texts meant in their original context and what they might mean today. You can study Latin or Greek separately as Single Honours degrees in their own right, or combine them together in the Classics degree. If you have never had the chance to study Latin or Greek before, you can start one or even both languages from scratch here.
