Classics focuses on the study of the Greek and Roman worlds, ranging from the earliest Greek literature to the fall of the Roman Empire. You'll also look at how ancient culture has been received and interpreted ever since. This degree is the broadest approach to this interdisciplinary field, incorporating the study of history, literature, language, art, philosophy, archaeology and other areas. You’ll explore Greek and Roman culture through our core modules and choose from optional modules on a wide range of different topics. You could study Greek philosophy, Roman comedy, the ruins of Pompeii, or how classical religion and myth have been used in 21st century texts, video games, film, and fiction. We study texts in translation, but if you want to learn or continue with an ancient language we also offer Ancient Greek and Latin at various levels. Leeds has plenty of useful resources for Classics students. Aside from a huge array of scholarly material on the subject, the world-class Brotherton Library holds a wide variety of manuscripts, archive and early printed material, coins and other materials from the ancient world in its Special Collections. The University Library offers a comprehensive training programme to help you make the most of Library resources and some of our modules involve trips to local museums (e.g. Leeds City Museum) too.
