Latin is primarily concerned with the study of classical Latin language and literature. During the BA programme, the main literary genres are studied and programmes in Roman history are provided which allow the literary works to be set in their historical and cultural context. Latin literature has its own intrinsic value, but it also provides the basic material for our understanding of the civilization of Rome. The programme offers modules both for those who have done little or no Latin previously and for those who have already studied Latin. The former take an intensive language programme in Stage 1. Successful Latin students will be interested in language and literature and should also have a sense of history.
