As a student studying Classics at New College, you have a chance to fully engage the rich and diverse nature of the discipline. From ancient languages and literature to classical mythology, drama, art, history, philosophy and culture, you will explore a wide variety of topics related to Greek and Roman life that shaped Western history and continue to influence modern society as well.
Classics is the study of the languages, culture, history, and thought of the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome. It is one of the most varied and interdisciplinary of all subjects, featuring a wide range of options. Students have the opportunity to study literature (epic, drama, historical writing, etc.), but they can also connect their study with history, archaeology, philosophy (both ancient and modern), religion, art history/criticism, and linguistics.
Whether you want to learn languages, read literature, explore the effect of the past on the present, or learn to apply science to arts, Classics has something for everyone. The study of Classics requires students to develop the analytical skills needed to understand ancient languages and engage in a range of disciplines.
