The Faculty of Classics, previously the Faculty of Literae Humaniores, is a subdivision of the University of Oxford concerned with the teaching and research of classics. The teaching of classics at Oxford has been going on for 900 years, and was at the centre of nearly all its undergraduates' education well into the twentieth century.

The Faculty was renamed "Classics" in 2001 after Philosophy, which had previously been a sub-faculty, became a faculty in its own right.[1] The Faculty of Classics is divided into two sub-faculties of Classical Languages & Literature, and Ancient History & Classical Archaeology.[2] The Faculty organises teaching and research - the main undergraduate programme being known as Literae Humaniores. It also runs a BA programme in Classical Archaeology and Ancient History. The Faculty of Classics is part of the Humanities Division. It runs projects including the Oxyrhynchus Papyrus Project and the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama.[3] It is the largest Classics department at any university in the world.

Location

The Faculty is based at the Ioannou School for Research in Classical and Byzantine Studies[4] on St. Giles', next to the Ashmolean Museum and Sackler Library. These three therefore form an informal 'Classics Triangle' in Oxford.[5] The Stelios Ioannou Centre for Classical and Byzantine Studies was opened in 2007 and designed by van Heyningen and Haward Architects. It provides research and teaching facilities for the Faculty and involved demolishing the old subsidiary buildings, while the significant parts of the existing buildings were retained to create a new central atrium.[6]
