Classical studies are a gateway to civilizations that still have a lot to teach us. The department's programs offer the chance to gain knowledge of ancient times through mythology, religion, Greek, Latin and philosophy, as well as linguistics, history, art and archaeology.

Are you a lover of art, antiques or sculpture? Do you love wandering around museums? We have our very own museum of Graeco-Roman antiques. Our collection, which comprises a wide range of objects from the entire Graeco-Roman world, is an asset of which the department is justly proud. The museum regularly hosts touring exhibits and houses pieces belonging to Canadian and foreign collectors.

All our programs are flexible and interdisciplinary. As a result, you will be well-prepared for a graduate or doctoral program. But regardless of your professional future, our undergraduate program will have prepared you to travel down the path of knowledge by imparting to you a sense of life's riches: classical culture, in-depth knowledge of languages, analytical skills. Armed with this knowledge, you will feel like the world is your oyster.
