Classics is the study of the ancient Greek and Roman cultures in their broadest sense: Greek and Latin language, literature, philosophy, ancient history, art and archaeology. It is also about where we come from and who we are today: many fundamental contemporary ideas, such as current conceptions of law, beauty and justice, come from the classical world. This breadth makes Classics at Cambridge vibrant, challenging and fun. It also makes our graduates highly marketable. In the Guardian's last two University Guides to Classics, Cambridge came top in the country overall and for 'Career Prospects'.

Cambridge is a wonderful place to study Classics, with a world-renowned set of specialists, and unique resources such as the Faculty's own Museum of Classical Archaeology and the Fitzwilliam Museum's Department of Antiquities.
