About Classics Program

About Classics Program

Classical Studies offers an in-depth study of the languages, literature, history and culture of ancient Greece and Rome. Students may complete one of the four standard undergraduate programs (Minor, Major, Honours, Joint Honours Concentration). The Minor and Major concentrations provide a useful complement for students in the arts and sciences. Two separate streams allow students to put emphasis either on the ancient languages or on the culture of the ancient Mediterranean. The Joint Honours and Honours degrees are designed to train students who wish to make Classics a basis for academic careers. They also offer students the prospect of favourable consideration for graduate and other professional schools.

All Classics degree options require students to choose courses from one or more of the following thematic areas:

  • Classical Languages
  • Classical Literature
  • Ancient History
  • Philosophy and Religion
  • Modern Greek

The current list of courses within each thematic area is available on the Classical Studies website: www.mcgill.ca/classics/teaching/thematic-areas.
