Department of Classics and Ancient History

Information for Alumni

We're always delighted to hear from our alumni. If you studied at Durham, we hope you will keep in touch - and let us know where your career takes you.

We hope this website will give you a taste of some of the work the Department has been doing recently. Do take a look at the latest issues of our Departmental newsletter (available below) for more updates: from Dr Ivana Petrovic’s collaboration with the director Oliver Stone, to Dr Jennifer Ingleheart’s research on Rome and the history of sexuality.

If you are ever in Durham - or would just like to send us your news - please do send us an email at Wherever you are in the world, drop by our Facebook page (Durham Department of Classics) to catch the latest updates. We look forward to hearing from you!


We're very grateful to our many alumni who have generously supported the Department's work. Thanks to their generosity we’ve been able to develop our outreach and community engagement work in some really exciting ways - and are now working on building up our Jenkinson-Rhodes scholarship fund, for future postgraduates.If you would like to support us by making a donation, you can do so by using this secure website:
