Former Programs

Over many decades Thorneloe University contributed five distinct programs through the Faculty of Arts at Laurentian University: Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies; Theatre Arts and Motion Picture Studies; Religious Studies; and Ancient Studies. By May 1 2021 all of these programs were closed when Laurentian University terminated its historic federation agreement with our university. The program and course descriptions remain on this website as a testimony to the achievements of our professors and lecturers, our benefactors, and above all, our students.

Ancient Studies

Ancient Studies is a multidisciplinary program designed for students with a broad interest in the ancient world, with a focus on the ancient Mediterranean world, from the earliest times to the age of the emperor Justinian in the mid-sixth century CE.

Classical Studies

Classical Studies embraces the study of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations. The Department is committed to offering a program that gives students a broad overview of the field, at the same time providing them with the basic skills necessary for further study.

The priority of the Motion Picture Arts production option is to prepare students for traditional careers in the production of theatrical features, TV programs, and in advertising.

Religious Studies

Religious Studies examines the variety of beliefs and behaviour by which human beings respond to the fundamental religious questions: What is the origin and purpose of life? What is the good human life?

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Women’s Studies first began to be offered in the universities in the 1970s, to use academic research to find out about the perceptions and experiences of women and to correct omissions, trivializations and misconceptions that existed.
