Classical studies embraces the study of all aspects of the cultures of Greece and Rome (their languages, literature, thought, religion, art, archaeology and history) and their influence on later ages. With no compulsory modules, this is an unusually flexible programme. We are acknowledged as one of the very best Classics Departments in the country, for stimulating teaching and overall quality of student experience as well as for cutting-edge research; the variety and flexibility of our teaching fully reflects the richness of the subject.
A King’s Classics degree will equip you with the transferable skills of research, analysis, presentation and critical thinking that are valued by future employers. Our alumni enter a wide range of professions, including law, banking, the civil service, information technology, librarianship, education, heritage industries, the media, journalism and the performing arts. A significant proportion proceed into higher professional or academic qualifications, often pursuing postgraduate degrees at King’s.
