For Classical Studies, all texts are usually taught in translation, so you don’t have to study Latin or Greek language modules unless you choose to. In each programme, your study time is divided equally between the two subjects.

In this Theology and Religion programme at The University of Exeter, you will study Greek/Roman Philosophy or Greek/ Roman Religion in the first and second years and choose optional modules in Classical Studies. In your third year you will study two modules in Classical Studies and two in Theology.

  • An understanding of other people’s points of view
  • An in-depth knowledge of different cultures
  • The ability to communicate your position clearly
