Classics is the study of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations from which our own modern civilization has developed and which continue to influence and shape our modern world. Students in classics study Greek and Roman societies in all their aspects including language, literature, history, philosophy, science and technology. Classics is the oldest academic discipline, with its traditions stretching back into antiquity itself. Modern western culture grows from these ancient roots, and knowledge of classical antiquity provides students with a broad cultural vocabulary, which helps you to understand western literature, laws and cultural institutions.
