Classics and Ancient History at Newcastle University has a long and distinguished international reputation for its research and teaching. Latin and Greek have been taught here since 1874, and Ancient History and Classical Archaeology since 1910 and 1931 respectively.
We offer a number of single and joint honours undergraduate programmes, and provide linguistic training in the classical languages at all levels. Classics at Newcastle has recently been singled out for its innovative approach to language teaching and for its close connection between teaching and research.
Also of note is the Maximus Student Society.
