Welcome to TCD Classics

Classics is by nature multidisciplinary, bringing together the study of the language and literature, philosophy, history, art history and archaeology of the Greek and Roman world. The Department is committed to excellence in both teaching and research, and our staff are all dedicated teachers and well-known for their research in fields as diverse as Neoplatonic philosophy, Bronze Age archaeology, Hellenistic poetry and history, Early Latin literature, classical Latin poetry, and Roman construction.

Classics at Trinity has a long and distinguished history, numbering Oscar Wilde among its famous past students. It is unique in Ireland in having separate Chairs in Greek and in Latin, and in offering a specialised programme in Ancient History and Archaeology.
