Classics in Final Year Arts

For full details, consult the Classics Student Handbook available on our Undergraduate Classics page.

Choosing your modules

All Final Year Classics students take 30 ECTS credits (6 modules) over the year.

We encourage everyone to make the best of the variety of choices. You may find yourself structuring your options around a specialism either in language(s) and literature, or in the material heritage of Antiquity; or you may simply take the set of modules that interest you most individually and build a unity of your own.

Special Project in Classics

There are a limited number of places in CCS303.II Special Project in Classics, which is designed for students who wish to conduct an independent research project. If you are interested in pursuing such a project, please speak to a member of staff with whom you would like to work. Acceptance to the module is competitive and is based on a formal application submitted by the end of September. This application must be approved by the potential supervisor and should include an outline of the proposed project, as well as preliminary annotated bibliography. The completed project will be submitted at the end of Semester Two.

You should check your timetable to make sure that the modules you choose are not scheduled at the same time. We have pointed out any clashes within the Classics programme, but we cannot predict clashes between Classics modules and modules in other subjects.
