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.
