The BA in Classical Studies (International Hons) at the University of St Andrews offers two pathways: Greek and Latin, or Ancient History and Archaeology. Both pathways allow you to explore the cultures of the Mediterranean world in great depth, from the Bronze Age through Late Antiquity. 


You will also have the option to take courses from both pathways, giving you an all-round perspective on the Greek and Roman world. 

The BA in Classical Studies (International Hons) at the University of St Andrews is a joint degree delivered by both the University of St Andrews and the College of William & Mary in Virginia, USA. This joint degree allows you to spend two years at each institution.
