The Faculty of Classics is committed to advancing research and teaching in all aspects of Classical culture and its reception at the very highest level, it is the intellectual home of some of the best-known Classicists, and of an increasingly diverse body of outstanding graduate students and exceptionally talented undergraduates.
Why support Classics at Cambridge?
We have exciting plans to expand what we do, while still maintaining our traditional excellence. We are committed to:
growing our outreach programme to remove the barriers of poverty and educational disadvantage and enable able students of all backgrounds to grapple with the intellectual challenges that the Classical world presents today
expanding the range of our teaching and research so as to cover exciting new methodologies and emergent fields
providing our researchers and students with a first-class physical environment to match the Faculty’s vibrant intellectual life
Classics is expanding its range, embracing the whole of ancient Mediterranean culture and all that Classics has meant to the world since antiquity. To enable us to take advantage of the opportunities that this expansion offers, we need to increase our funded positions for teaching and research to address the full sweep of the Classical world.
Cambridge is committed to bringing the study of Greek and Latin to a yet wider and more diverse range of students. We need a properly funded access and outreach programme to achieve our aim of widening participation and ensuring gender and race equality.
