Description:BA Honours programs provide a high degree of specialization in one subject area (or in some cases, two areas combined) and demand a higher standard both for admission and ongoing performance in the program. All Honours programs in the Faculty of Arts require one year of study prior to admission and applicants must present a minimum of (★24) credits to be eligible to apply.

Classics involves the study of ancient cultures, in particular the literature, history and art of the great civilizations of Greece and Rome in the period from about 500 B.C. to A.D. 500. The Department offers courses in many aspects of Greek and Roman life and in a number of related fields such as the Ancient Near East and Egypt. During the Spring and Summer terms, by arrangement with Special Sessions, the Department frequently offers undergraduate and graduate courses in practical archaeology at excavation sites in Italy and Greece.
The Honours programme in Classics is designed to provide an opportunity for interested students to acquire both breadth and depth in classics: breadth in the sense that students take courses ranging widely in place and time, and depth in that students select a field of specialization in which they write an Honours essay during the fourth year.
