What will I learn?

This three-year degree programme offers you the opportunity to study Greek and English in parallel, and to gain knowledge of two diverse bodies of language, literature and culture, and the myriad relations between them. The programme allows you to develop your skills in criticism and expression, cultural self-awareness and comparison.

Degree benefits

  • Study in two top-rated departments (Guardian University Guide 2021) in one of the world's top-rated universities (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2021).

  • You will have access to an unparalleled range of options, from Roman Love Poetry and Roman Satire to Renaissance Literature, Shakespeare, the Eighteenth Century and Modern Literature.

  • UCL has excellent library facilities, and is ideally situated, close to world-renowned resources such as the British Museum, the British Library and the Institute of Classical Studies.

  • The lively student-run Classical Society organises an annual Classics play (a Greek or Latin drama in translation) at the nearby Bloomsbury Theatre. The English Society also supports theatre productions, as well as social activities, speaker events, and contributing to UCL Festival of the Arts.

Your learning

You will be taught through lectures, seminars and small-group work. Some modules will involve student presentations. You will be assigned a Personal Tutor with whom you will review your progress on a regular basis.

In the English Department students will be producing two tutorial essays a term (one for each of their English modules) for one-to-one tutorials with their Personal Tutor.

Assessment

The modules will be examined by a mixture of essays, end-of-year examinations, and a compulsory final-year extended essay based on supervised independent research (overseen by the Greek & Latin department). Some Greek language modules involve in-class tests and grammar quizzes.

Careers

Graduates of Greek and English may acquire a thorough grounding in the skills of expression and analysis, and a refined sensibility of cultural appreciation and analysis. The degree is rigorous and will open up a wide range of career possibilities including culture and the arts, media, law, finance, management and consultancy, government and politics.
