You will study a broad range of literary and non-literary sources, which are taught in innovative and dynamic ways by staff engaged in groundbreaking research. You'll continue the study of Ancient Greek language alongside accelerated Italian.

In your first year, you will take core modules in Greek language, accelerated Italian, Greek Culture and Society, and Roman Culture and Society. In your second year you will continue with Italian alongside a Greek text module (optional core) and two further optional Classics modules. You will spend your third year studying classical subjects in Italian at one of our partner universities (currently in Venice, Rome, Padua or Bologna) and then return for your final year at Warwick.

Second and final year students may take one 30-CAT module or two 15-CAT modules from outside the department (e.g. from the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning or another academic dept) in place of an optional module.

You will study Classics in a variety of ways – through lectures, seminars, and language classes, and, in your final year, through a dissertation on a topic of your own choice, with guidance from your departmental supervisor.

Contact hours

You'll take four modules, each with 2-3 contact hours per week (more for your language module/s).

Class size

Class sizes vary from 6 to 80. Honours modules are capped at 60.

You will take four modules each year, the assessment of which is generally equally divided between essays submitted during the year and exams in the summer (100% exam for language modules). Your second and final years contribute equally to your final degree classification.

You will spend your third year studying classical subjects in Italian at one of our partner universities (currently in Venice, Rome, Bologna or Padua), before returning for your final year at Warwick. During the year abroad, you will benefit not only from full immersion in another language and culture, but from Italy’s excellent universities and world-leading classical scholarship.
