Open a window onto the extraordinary history and culture of ancient Rome and the Roman Empire. Learn the language that is the ancestor of many European languages. Delve into the classical texts that have shaped world literature and European history.
At St Andrews, you will not only develop language skills, but also examine a wide range of literary genres from epic poetry to historiography and letter-writing. Courses and modules cover a vast timeline from the pre-classical period to the Middle Ages.
The University of St Andrews has been a centre for classical studies since its foundation in 1413, and the School of Classics continues to build on its reputation for both teaching and research.
