Classical Studies (former program)

What is Classical Studies (former program)

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.

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.

N.B. For Ancient Studies programs, please see Ancient Studies.
