Overview

Classics is the degree for you if you want to study the Greeks and Romans and at the same time either continue with, or learn, the languages in which they thought and wrote. In the language modules, your language skills and literary awareness will be developed through encounters with a wide range of texts (in poetry and prose) from the Greco-Roman world. The rest of the degree allows you to study the society and culture of antiquity, including its literature, art, history and archaeology. If you have no previous experience of either Greek or Latin, the introductory level modules are designed to move you towards reading texts in their original languages as swiftly as possible. The more advanced modules allow for in-depth study of a wide variety of particular authors. You will have the advantage of expert tuition, often in very small groups, and the opportunity to develop specialist interests.

Subject is available through Honours. More information here

Programme structure

In Year One you will either continue with, or begin, Greek and Latin language, depending on previous experience. Other modules are on Greek and Roman literature in translation (the cultural cornerstones of the Odyssey and the Aeneid), ancient history, and visual culture.

In Year Two, you will continue to develop both your skills in Latin and Greek, and your awareness of how Greek and Roman authors were using their languages. Your optional modules can be in Greek and Roman culture, Classical literature in translation and Ancient History.

In Year Three, your dissertation will give you the opportunity to undertake detailed and independent research under the guidance of an expert adviser. The subject matter itself will be your own choice. You will also continue with Greek and Latin and will read key authors in the original language. The optional modules on offer draw directly on the areas of particular expertise of the Liverpool teaching staff.
