Courses

Courses in Ancient Greek and Latin are mandatory for all degrees in Classics and for the Specialized Honours BA degree in Classical Studies. For all other degrees in Classical Studies, language courses are optional. Students taking a Classical Studies degree are encouraged, however, to make Ancient Greek and/or Latin a component of their Classical Studies degree programme, especially if they are even mildly contemplating graduate studies in Classics or Ancient History.

Not all of the courses listed below will necessarily be offered in any given year.

With the approval of the Coordinator of the Classical Studies Programme, and subject to course exclusion and residency requirements, students may be permitted to complete other courses for program credit in Classical Studies.

To view courses in more detail and sorted by level, see courses by level.
