Greek and Roman Studies Programs
The department of Greek and Roman Studies (formerly the department of Classics) offers the student an opportunity to study Greek and Roman language, literature, history, archaeology and philosophical thought at any of three levels of concentration in the original languages or through English translations. The department offers the following programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts:
- Greek and Roman Studies: General, Major and Honours programs
- Greek and Latin Language and Literature: Major and Honours programs
While a degree in Greek and Roman Studies can be focused to some extent on ancient art and archaeology, history, social history or literature in translation, the department strongly recommends that some courses in Greek or Latin language be taken for the Greek and Roman Studies degrees.
Study towards the degrees in Greek and Latin Language and Literature may be focused to some extent on either Greek or Latin, but the department strongly recommends that at least 6 units be taken in the second language.
It is assumed that students following the General or Major Programs will be taking advanced courses in other departments. Students following an Honours Program with the department of Greek and Roman Studies should note that it may be possible for them to complete an Honours program in another field if they have the joint consent of that department and the department of Greek and Roman Studies.
Students are welcome at any time to discuss their program with members of the department and are encouraged to do so in the first or second years of their studies.
Many of the advanced courses in Greek and Roman Studies are open to second-year students, and a Major in Greek and Roman Studies may be completed in two years. Nevertheless, students are encouraged to plan their programs, since the lack of prerequisites may limit their choice of courses. Greek and Latin courses above the 100 level require prerequisites.
