Discover the dynamic legacies of ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt. Turn your passion into expertise as you explore myth, history, literature, classical archaeology, philosophy and art, in the heart of Roman Britain. The Classical Studies (Hons) program is offered at University of Kent.


Join world-leading experts, including practicing archaeologists and historians. You’ll study civilisations, from the Minoan and Mycenean period, up to classical Greece, Republican Rome and early Christianity. Build a perspective of classical cultures as living traditions, and how they’ve continued to shape the world. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn ancient languages, and spend valuable time working as an intern in the heritage or museum sector.


You gain key transferable skills such as the ability to analyse and summarise complex information, to manage and organise your time, and to express your opinion persuasively and with sensitivity, skills that will leave you well placed to embark on a graduate career.

Possible careers include archaeology, the heritage industry, museums, business, journalism, Civil Service, computing, media, librarianship or teaching; you might also want to pursue further academic study. The Classical Studies (Hons) program is offered at University of Kent.
