Classics degrees concentrate on the Greek and Latin languages at advanced level, as well as the literature of the ancient world. Existing knowledge of either Greek or Latin at advanced level is an entrance requirement for all Classics degrees.

Some students progress from the PGDip in Greek, and the PGDip in Latin, to the MA in Classics.
