Department of Classics and Ancient History
Welcome to the Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Sydney. Classics and Ancient History has been taught at Sydney since the University's inception in 1852. The department is located in the historic main quadrangle and the adjunct Brennan/MacCallum buildings (map). We are the largest department of Classics and Ancient History in Australasia with an internationally renowned faculty.
The Department is administered by the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry (SOPHI), within the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. If you have already enrolled in an undergraduate degree, or are about to start one, we invite you to explore our offerings. We also offer several postgraduate research programmes and have a large and vibrant postgraduate community.
Thanks to a generous gift from Mr Jeffrey Hilton and his wife Ms Suzanne Coleman, the Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Sydney is pleased to announce the 2014 round of the Coleman-Hilton Scholarship. This award will enable an outstanding PhD student to focus on a concentrated period of research whilst in residency at the British School at Rome (BSR), a leading humanities research institute.
