About

The Classics programme offered at the University College London (UCL) is taught in collaboration with King's College London and Royal Holloway, University of London. The programme draws on the wealth of expertise across the three colleges and students benefit from full access to all modules. The programme attracts European students and other students from overseas as well as the UK.

Overview

The Classics programme offered at the University College London (UCL) enables students to study in depth key aspects of the languages, literatures and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome (and their reception). 

It provides students with the skills of critical and conceptual thinking and  equips them with the tools necessary for further research (including training in the use of digital resources online, library catalogues and archives).

Dissertation/report

All students undertake an independent research project in classical language, literature, thought or the classical tradition. The project culminates in a dissertation of 12,000 words (60 credits). The project must display advanced knowledge of at least one of the classical languages.

Teaching and learning

The programme is taught in small seminars or classes, rarely exceeding twelve participants. Students are expected to prepare for class each week, typically by reading preparatory material and texts in the original Greek or Latin. Student performance is assessed through coursework essays, unseen examination, and the dissertation.
