Single Honor Classics

Ancient Greek and Latin languages lie at the very core of how we speak, write and intellectualise our thoughts. Trinity has a long established and internationally recognised degree in Classics. It concentrates on the study of the original of the great works of Greek and Latin literature in a wide range of genres, including epic, drama, lyric poetry, philosophy and history. Ancient history and elements of Classical art and archaeology are studied in conjunction with the Greek and Latin languages and literatures. This encourages a comprehensive, interdisciplinary approach to classical culture.

Course Structure

Greek and Latin for non-beginners (Greek and Latin A) are designed for those who have already studied ancient Greek and Latin in school, and who wish to continue to read classical literature in the original languages. Beginners Greek and/or Latin (Greek and Latin B) are available to those who have not previously studied the language(s).
