Classics at Cambridge
Cambridge is a lively and diverse location for classical research: the Faculty aims to further individual and collaborative research into all major aspects of Classical culture and its reception at the highest possible level of attainment, and is recognised as a leading centre in the subject world-wide.
The Classics research community includes University Teaching Officers (UTOs), College Teaching Officers (CTOs), Junior Research Fellows (JRFs), Post-Doctoral Fellows, and Graduate Students. There are six ‘caucuses’ within the Faculty focused on the main on the main sub-disciplines within the subject–literature, ancient philosophy, ancient history, classical art and archaeology, linguistics, and interdisciplinary studies—which help to coordinate both teaching and research. These run series of research seminars in their area every year, where staff, visitors, and students present and discuss their work.
The Faculty of Classics is part of the School of Arts and Humanities in the University of Cambridge. The Faculty includes approximately 32 Teaching Officers (Professors, Readers, University Lecturers, and Language Teaching Officers) whose primary teaching responsibilities are university lectures and classes and graduate supervision.
