Course summary

TEF Gold

University of Kent has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.

Find out more about the TEF.

The great strength of Classical & Archaeological Studies is the hugely interesting and varied range of subjects it includes – literature, mythology, drama, archaeology, art and architecture, history, languages and philosophy – and the way they all connect in the study of ancient civilisations, including those of Egypt, Greece, Rome and their neighbours. At Kent, you can do elements from all these areas inside one programme if you want to, or you can follow a more specialised pathway, in literature, ancient history or archaeology. You also have the opportunity to learn Latin or Ancient Greek, which are taught at beginners, intermediate and advanced levels. Much of European civilisation grew out of the classical world so it is not surprising that it is still highly relevant today, and enriching to explore and study. Canterbury, as a late Iron Age settlement, a Romano-British city, an Anglo-Saxon town, and a centre of early Christianity, is a good base for studying different cultures.
