English and Classical Studies University of Bristol

Undergraduate

Our Joint Honours English and Classical Studies degree combines investigation of the ancient Greco-Roman world with the study of works from all periods of English literature, many of which reflect or reanimate ancient texts and topics.

Both halves of the course give you the opportunity to follow your own interests and particular enthusiasms through optional units, including Latin or Ancient Greek. You may also study ancient arts, such as epic or drama, alongside their more modern forms in literature written in English.

Your dissertation in year three will draw on both degree subjects to discuss a topic that concerns both the ancient world and English literature.
