The CAAH course is aimed at anyone interested in investigating ancient civilisations and their remains, from Greek temples and Roman amphitheatres to wall-paintings and the poignant residues of everyday life. Whilst it is primarily a historical and non-linguistic degree, ancient languages can be read and learned as part of the course.
There are lots of resources, and Corpus has a very active Classics community, within which CAAH students fit well: learning happens in the university-organized classes, the college-based tutorials, but also in interaction in the Classics Society, and in speaking to other students. World-class research seminars on ancient history and classical archaeology are organised every year by the Corpus Christi College Centre for the Study of Greek and Roman Antiquity. All in all, Corpus is a very strong place in which to do any classically related subject.
Corpus admits 10 students a year across Classics and its joint schools, including Classical Archaeology and Ancient History. We have an excellent, world-class library in Classics, with a special interest in art history, archaeology, and epigraphy.
