The Classics programme offered by the University of Cambridge encompasses the history, culture, archaeology, art, philosophy, and linguistics of classical antiquity and the study of original texts and artifacts. You can either specialize in a particular field or retain the breadth with which the course starts. 


The Classics programme offered by the University of Cambridge offers a three-year course and a four-year course. The three-year course is usually for students with A Level/IB Higher Level Latin or equivalent (regardless of whether they have Greek). This degree offers an intensive ancient Greek programme for those with little or no Classical Greek.

The four-year course is for those with little or no Latin and offers a preliminary year which focuses on Latin language and Roman culture. 

Facilities and resources

The Faculty’s facilities include a well-stocked library and our own Museum of Classical Archaeology. In addition, you have access to the holdings of the Fitzwilliam Museum, where some classes take place. There’s a thriving student society, and the renowned Cambridge Greek Play (produced in the original language) is regularly staged by a professional director. We also offer various undergraduate prizes, bursaries and travel grants.


Studying Classics will help you develop transferable skills that are essential for many careers after graduation. The students are hard-working, articulate, accurate and efficient, take new tasks in their stride and can master situations intelligently.

Some graduates go into research and teaching in schools and universities or work in libraries and museums. But most go into other careers – in law, the media, accountancy, the Civil Service, industry and business. The graduates include bankers, barristers, solicitors, actors, musicians, and theatrical artistic directors.
