Program Information

School:Laurentian University/Universite Laurentienne
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Field of Study:Classical, Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern Studies and Archaeology
Description:Classical Studies embraces the study of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations (i.e., their languages, literature, history, and archaeology). The Department is committed to offering a program that gives students a broad overview of the field, while at the same time providing them with the basic skills necessary for further study. The ancient Greek and Latin languages are central to the discipline. Study of these languages allows students to engage in and understand the literature and material remains from the ancient world. At the same time, familiarity with these languages assists students in understanding the vocabulary and grammar of many modern languages, including French and English.

Classical history and archaeology are challenging because documentary evidence is much more fragmentary than for most other periods of history. Therefore, students learn to work with a wide variety of documents, literary texts (including poetry), architectural remains, inscriptions, coins, etc.
