All students in Classics benefit from tuition which is organised centrally by the Faculty and, on a more individual basis, by the College through your Director of Studies. This variety of provision allows us to offer a unique level of care and flexibility. Lectures are offered on all parts of the course as well as in some areas that cut across the disciplines, while classes (especially in Part II) allow you to debate issues and formulate your own arguments.
Throughout your degree course supervisions will give you the chance to study the ancient world in depth, often emphasising a different angle from the lectures. Often you will write an essay in advance and then discuss it with your supervisor and one or two other students. Supervisions train you to think critically and independently, giving you a real opportunity to work on your intellectual development.
In addition to lectures and seminars the Faculty has excellent up-to-date facilities to support your studies. These include the Museum of Classical Archaeology, housing one of the finest collections of casts of classical sculpture in the world and a regular base for supervisions and art and archaeology teaching, and a Library, which houses an excellent collection of primary and secondary literature as well as providing a comfortable environment in which to study. The Greek and Roman galleries of the Fitzwilliam Museum are just up the road.
