Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
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.
