Why Warwick? The University of Warwick is a world-leading university, born out of boldness, imagination and collaboration. We’ve built a strong reputation for upholding the highest academic and research standards. Today, more than 27,000 students thrive in a supportive, welcoming space where everything you need to study, live and have fun is close to hand. Explore what Warwick has to offer, and you’ll develop a skillset that sets you apart, and sets you up to succeed. What that success looks like is up to you. The course This wide-ranging, flexible degree is devoted to the study of the literature, history, philosophy, languages, art and archaeology of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. The course allows you to choose from a wide range of topics – such as gender and sexuality in antiquity, democracy and imperialism, ancient global history, Roman laughter, or the history of medicine – and to develop skills in literary criticism and historical analysis as well as in theoretical and interdisciplinary approaches to the subject. Teaching is varied, innovative and interactive, and our students benefit from many hands-on learning experiences, including recreating the experience of a Greek symposium, visiting historical sites and museums in the UK, and taking part in our annual classical play. You will take either Latin or Ancient Greek in your first year, and study four modules per year. Our four-year Classical Civilisation with Study in Europe degree has a similar structure to our three year course, but you will spend your third year studying classical subjects at one of our partner universities in Europe (currently in Bologna, Padua, Rome or Venice, with recent confirmation of new placements in Berlin and Tübingen, Germany), before returning for your final year at Warwick. During the year abroad, you will benefit not only from full immersion in another language and culture, but from Italy and Germany’s excellent universities and world-leading classical scholarship.
