Greek & Roman Studies

Submitted by darmstro on Wed, 06/28/2017 - 3:13pm

Greece and Rome provide the basis for the institutions and intellectual themes of our society.

Democracy, philosophy. and the academic study of medicine and science all begin in Athens. The political organization of Rome provides the model for governments such as that of the United States. Western legal codes are based on those of the Romans. To understand Europe – and to understand Canada – there is no better place to begin than with ancient Greece and Rome.

At the graduate level you will focus on the languages, the linguistics, the history, the literature, the philosophy or the material cultures of Greece and Rome. A higher degree in Greek and Roman studies will equip you for further graduate study, for museum or library studies, for teaching, for Law, and for many areas of journalism and communication.
