Four-year course

students engaging
Classics is the degree that allows you to study the languages and cultures of the Ancient Greeks and Romans. It brings together the study of language, linguistics, literature, history, philosophy, art and archaeology. The faculty has some of the most committed Classics teachers in the world, who all strongly believe that the study of the ancient world is both fascinating in itself and provides knowledge and skills of life-long relevance. 

For students who do not have Latin A level (or equivalent), Cambridge offers a four-year undergraduate course. Students learn both languages during the course, and no prior experience is assumed. This makes the course ideal if you have a strong interest in the classical world but have not yet had the chance to study the languages at all, or have only had the opportunity to study Latin or Greek to GSCE level.

Use the navigation column on the left to explore the course in more detail. You can also download the latest brochure on the 4-year course specifically. (Please e-mail schools.liaison@classics.cam.ac.uk to order hard copies of this for your school.)
