Course Description

Our BA Latin and Linguistics Joint Honours course will enable you to develop your linguistic skills in an ancient language while delving into the science of language - an everyday phenomenon which impacts our lives on an individual and a global scale.

You will study topics such as the ways in which children acquire their first language, differences between the speech of men and women, how the sound systems and grammars of different types of language are organised, what happens when speakers of different languages come into contact, and much else besides.

You will also study Latin language and literature in each of your three years of study. You can learn Latin either as a beginner or from A-level standard. There is also the opportunity to take specialist courses in Ancient History, Philosophy, Art, Archaeology and Egyptology.

Our course will help you to develop analytical and problem-solving skills. Often dealing with granular and complex data, your combination of humanities and scientific understanding will allow you to make connections across multiple fields of employment.
