Please note: Course content has changed since this film was produced.
Classics at Cambridge isn't just studied as a period in the past, but looks at how classical culture, language and philosophy have affected the history of Western civilisation right up to the present day.
The Faculty of Classics is one of the most dynamic of its kind, with an exceptional reputation for teaching and research. Our course encompasses the history, culture, archaeology, art, philosophy and linguistics of classical antiquity and the study of original texts and artefacts.
Some of the students who appear in our course films are also featured in the 60 Second Impressions series, which can be found at http://www.cam.ac.uk/60seconds/ - keep checking back as we'll be adding new films every couple of weeks!
