University of Bristol has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our BA Classics focuses on the study and appreciation of a wide spectrum of Greek and Latin literature. Languages are taught at all levels from absolute beginner onward. Some classes concentrate on building and developing language and translation skills; others focus on literary criticism and engagement with the text. In the first two years you will study both Greek and Latin language and literature, as well as choosing from optional units on a wide range of topics including Greco-Roman literature, philosophy and art. There is the possibility of studying abroad for one semester in the second year. In your third year you will continue to study at least one language and choose from a range of special subject seminars based on our academics' wide range of research interests. In co-operation with a supervisor, you will also research and write a dissertation on a topic of your choice. You will also plan, promote and execute a project aimed at presenting the ancient world to the wider public, with a member of staff acting as adviser.
