Teaching and learning

Studying Classics at Warwick

Our engagement with the classical world goes beyond the classroom. In just the last two years we have staged a Greek symposium, created digital stories, contributed to public engagement projects, and visited archaeological sites and museums.

We are always seeking new ways of engaging our students in the Greek and Roman worlds, and pushing the boundaries of what it means to study those worlds today.

Modules and assessment

All our degrees involve both core and optional modules. Assessment is through essays and exams, and in some cases, digital stories, blogs, online database work and practical criticisms.

Innovative teaching

In collaboration with Warwick's Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning, we are continually seeking new ways of engaging our students in the ancient Greek and Roman worlds.

Beyond the classroom

Each year the Student Classics Society stage a Classical play at a professional theatre as part of the Warwick Ancient Drama Festival.

Undergraduate research

The final year dissertation, the Undergaduate Research Support Scheme, site visits, and archaeological excavations provide plenty of opportunities to take part in cutting edge research.

World-leading academics

Our staff are at the forefront of their fields, leading internationally-recognised research projects and shaping the discipline – through publications, textbooks, TV and radio.

Study abroad

Some of our degrees offer a four-year option, with the third year spent at one of our partner universities in Venice, Bologna, Padua or Rome. We also have connections with Monash University, Australia.
