Classical Studies

What is Classical Studies

Veni, vidi, vici

Come and study the languages, literature, history, and archaeology of the ancient Mediterranean. See and feel the materials left from another time and place. Conquer the classical world of ancient Greek and Roman civilizations and gain a thorough knowledge of theories, sources, and approaches that will provide you with a solid comprehension of the past, and a better understanding of the present. Apply knowledge of Latin and Greek to understand the vocabulary, structure, and development of many modern languages, including Canada’s two official languages. Study the two main languages of the ancient Mediterranean, read the texts, engage in the poetry, and analyze the architectural remains, inscriptions, coins, and much more.
