Joint-honours Latin and English is based on the study of Latin language and literature in each of the three years of study, pursued in parallel to the full range of English studies (options include writings from Middle English, the Renaissance, historical and contemporary English Language, and cultural theory). If you offer Latin as one of your A-level subjects, you will continue your study of the language on Route 1; if you have not studied the subject before then you will begin your study of it on Route 2. Where appropriate, texts for literary and historical course units are studied in Latin. There is a wide range of styles of teaching, including lectures, seminars, small-group tutorials and virtual seminars via the web.
**The course aims to:**
- Develop and encourage students' interest in the languages, literature and culture of the classical world, by providing a broadly based and challenging curriculum including course-units that are innovative and stimulating, informed by the research expertise of the teaching staff, and examined by a range of methods of assessment;
- Provide the opportunity to focus on English Literature of the medieval period;
- Advise and suggest course units which best exploit the interactions between the subjects of Latin and English Literature;
- Enable students to read an ever-growing range of ancient authors in the original, with accuracy, fluency and enjoyment;
- Provide students with progressive language courses in Latin, starting from elementary, intermediate or advanced level, consolidating any existing knowledge of the language(s) and developing particularly reading knowledge but also some active competence and other language-based and language-related skills;
- Train students in the methods, techniques and approaches necessary for the critical study of Latin literature, based on extensive reading of classical texts, studied both in the original language(s) and in translation;
- Help students to work independently and to organise effectively their own schedules of personal study;
- Produce graduates with the transferable cognitive skills necessary to equip them for employment, postgraduate study, or further training.
Students may apply to spend one semester studying abroad during the second year of their degree. For more information consult the Study Abroad Programme website.
