Much of European civilisation grew out of the classical world, so it is not surprising that its study is still highly relevant today. Classical & Archaeological Studies offers a hugely interesting and varied range of subjects, such as literature, mythology, drama, archaeology, art and architecture, history, languages and philosophy, all of which are connected to the study of ancient civilisation. Classical & Archaeological Studies at Kent offers a range of undergraduate single and joint honours programmes, exciting opportunities for study abroad and a wide module selection. Our postgraduate programmes offer more specialist study supported by academics with track records in world-leading research.
