There is a huge difference between those two subjects. Class Civ deals with all aspects of the Greek and Roman worlds: Architecture, History, Politics and Drama as well as Philosophy. A Philosophy A level will cover modern Philosophers as well as Greek and Roman ones.

Here are two spec overviews so you can compare and contrast:

Yeah, the two subjects are completely different. I do both of them, and right now in Classics we are studying the Greek epic 'The Odyssey,' and the play 'Medea.' In Philosophy, we are looking at cosmological arguments for the existence of God. You also learn about Greek and Roman life in Classics - it's quite literature based.
