You don’t have to have taken particular subjects at school to study Classics at Cambridge. Our 4-year degree course starts from scratch and awards the same degree as our 3-year course taken after A-Level Latin.

“Classics” is the study of the Greek and Roman cultures in the broadest sense. At Cambridge we study Greek and Latin language, literature, philosophy, history, art and archaeology. You get to specialise in what most interests you.
