Classical literature has had a profound and enduring influence on European literature and culture from medieval to modern times. This course will appeal to those with a particular interest in comparative study of the two subjects.

What our students say

I love studying Classics and French at LMH. The course has let me discover over two thousand years of literature, as well as subjects I’d never tried before, such as Ancient History and Medieval French. Doing both Classics and Modern Languages means you always have a different perspective to share and gives a huge variety to your degree. LMH is a great place to study CML as the tutors really understand the benefits and challenges of doing two subjects. I’d encourage anyone who is interested in the ancient and the modern world to apply.

Classics Faculty podcasts

The Classics Faculty is really pleased to share with you their Regional Classics podcast series. This features discussions with current students, staff and alumni from regions of the UK that have traditionally been underrepresented within the Faculty, about their relationship with the Ancient World. We hope the podcast, as well as being a great listen, will encourage prospective students and show that Oxford Classicists can and do come from a wide cross-section of society from across the UK (and beyond).
