Greek and Latin has been ranked consistently among the top three UK departments in the field over the last decade: our flexible and interdisciplinary PhD programme in Greek and Latin from University College London (UCL) prepares students for leading positions in the field, and we host international conferences several times a year.


The department is one of the leading international centres for graduate study and research on the classical world. The Greek and Latin programme is offered by University College London (UCL).

There are in total around 30 leading academics at UCL who work on all aspects of the ancient world. 


Classical languages, literature, philosophy and reception studies are based in UCL Greek & Latin; colleagues in ancient history, art history and archaeology are based in UCL History and the Institute of Archaeology, and we work closely to provide a rich interdisciplinary programme. 

Located at the heart of the capital, we are at the hub of an unrivalled range of resources for the study of the ancient world. The UCL Library possesses excellent holdings for all areas of our discipline.
