The course

If you have an interest in both Classics and English, and have studied either Latin or Ancient Greek to A Level (or the equivalent), this course will enable you to study classical antiquity (its literature, art, material culture and thought) together with its reception in English literature through the Western tradition.

We are one of the few universities in the UK to offer a combined degree that treats the two subjects as a continuum. English may be taken with either Latin or Greek language, but you may also choose from a wide menu of different modules taught by renowned experts in their fields from both the Departments of Classics and English. The course examines the multiple and ever-evolving interactions between the artistic production of classical antiquity and English literature, from Shakespeare to contemporary poets, novelists and dramatists. Many of the modules, for example Epic into Novel (an optional core first year English module), Humanism and Early Modern Latin Texts, and Ancient Greek Theatre (two honours Classics modules), encourage interdisciplinary thinking between the two inter-related fields. You will become aware of broad and subtle trends in the development of Western literature, and acquire the knowledge and critical skills to make your own connections between genres, authors, themes, concepts, theories and historical moments.

Additional fee information

In line with government policy decisions, Home and EU undergraduate tuition fees for the 2020/21 academic year are £9,250. For students who qualify for government-regulated fees (currently students classed as ‘Home’ or ‘Home/EU’ for fees purposes), the University expects to increase fees in line with any inflationary uplift as determined by the UK Government, if permitted by law or government policy, in the second and subsequent years of your course. Fees for Channel Islands students are linked to the Home fee as well as the Office for Students annual funding levels and are therefore subject to change in line with the above statement as well as the annual funding award for the year of study. The University has set the International fees for the period to 2021-22.
