Enhance your understanding of the ancient world by reading, translating and interpreting ancient Greek texts. While at Victoria University of Wellington you’ll study the language at an advanced level, helping you gain insights you can only get from reading the original.


Key facts

Develop a deeper understanding of one of the classical cultures that underpin the modern world—our political and legal systems, our philosophical and social thought, and the myths and stories you see on the page, stage and screen.

Studying in Victoria University of Wellington's School of Languages and Cultures, you'll learn from award-winning staff. You'll join a welcoming programme that encourages many students to continue their postgraduate study. Enjoy the benefits of a lively research environment with links to key overseas researchers and institutions in the world of classics.

When you study Greek for an MA or PhD, the subject name becomes Classics since advanced research often involves work in both Greek and Latin.
