What happens in Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies?

In this department, the languages and cultures of the two great classical civilisations of Greece and Rome are studied; in the Mediterranean world, these cultures met and influenced one another and their legacy exercises a lasting influence on our world.

The department offers language courses in Greek and Latin. No previous knowledge is required in any of these modules for study in the first year. Courses dealing with the cultures of these civilisations are also offered in Classical studies
