Classics (or Classical Studies), if I'm not mistaken, tends to focus primarily on ancient Rome, ancient Athens/Greece, and texts/plays from those periods. Classics also focuses heavily on the culture, society, art, architecture and literature of ancient Rome/Athens/Greece. But I think the incas, mayans and aztecs might also come under classical civilisations? Honestly not 100% sure.

Ancient History I think is a lot more all-encompassing. So I think it focuses on most civilisations up until the fall of the Roman empire?

Sorry for the vagueness/uncertainty.. I did Higher Classical Studies and Higher History, so my knowledge is limited when it comes to actual degree-level courses.
