Course Description

This three-year degree programme offers you the opportunity to study Latin and English in parallel, and to gain knowledge of two diverse bodies of language, literature and culture, and the relations between them. The programme allows you to develop your skills in criticism and expression, cultural self-awareness and comparison.

  • Study in two top-rated departments (Guardian University Guide 2018) in one of the world's top-rated universities (QS World University Rankings 2018).

  • You will have access to an unparalleled range of options, from Roman Love Poetry and Roman Satire to Renaissance Literature, Shakespeare, the Eighteenth Century and Modern Literature.

  • UCL has excellent library facilities, and is ideally situated, close to world-renowned resources such as the British Museum, the British Library and the Institute of Classical Studies.

  • The lively student-run Classical Society organises an annual Classics play (a Greek or Latin drama in translation) at nearby Bloomsbury Theatre. The English Society also supports theatre productions, as well as social activities, speaker events, and contributing to UCL Festival of the Arts.
