Peterhouse does not operate a fixed quota of places in Classics, but tends to admit about 3 students each year, and we accept applications for the three-year and four- year course. More information about the course can be found on the University website. Peterhouse has two Fellows in Classics: Dr Philip Pattenden (who is Director of Studies in Classics) and Dr Nicholas Zair (Director of Studies in Linguistics). For a student's perspective on studying Classics at Peterhouse, have a look at the JCR's alternative prospectus.
The Classics course at Cambridge allows you to study the history, culture, archaeology, art, philosophy and linguistics of classical antiquity, incorporating the study of original texts and artefacts. You can either specialise in a particular field or retain the breadth with which the course starts.
