Full Time: 4 Years
Explore the fascinating cultures of ancient Greece and Rome, and develop core academic skills, with our BA Classics with Foundation course.
This four-year programme includes a foundation year that leads directly into the three-year course. It provides an excellent route to a degree in classics if you do not have the typical entry qualifications.
Immerse yourself in ancient cultures which lie at the very heart of western civilisation, and resonate throughout our modern world. Explore the classical world from political, social and cultural perspectives, and study ancient texts in their original languages.
Taught by experts from the Department of Classics, your studies will be enriched by:
focused language learning. We offer Latin and Greek at all levels, allowing you to gain advanced language knowledge. Each week, you'll receive an impressive three to four hours of language teaching in small groups, working on grammar, vocabulary and translation.
hands-on learning experiences. Unique artefacts of the classical world are available from the Ure Museum, our internationally important collection of Greek and Egyptian antiquities.
our research-rich environment. 100% of our research impact has been recognised as world leading or internationally excellent (Research Excellence Framework 2014). Our leading academics — who have won teaching awards — use this research to enrich your learning, ensuring you will know the latest developments in the field.
Our BA Classics with Foundation is flexible, allowing you to follow your interests and choose modules from other departments.
