General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Leslie Longo-Viccica 905-688-5550, extension 3575 Mackenzie Chown A207 https://brocku.ca/classics/ Classics is an interdisciplinary field, overlapping all the main areas of the Humanities. The Department of Classics offers two types of courses: courses in Greek or Latin language and literature, and courses in Classics, embracing ancient civilization in all its aspects: literature, philosophy, education, history, religion, art and archaeology. In general, CLAS courses require no knowledge of Greek or Latin. The Department has special resources for illustrating ancient life. Archaeological training sessions are conducted in the summer in Mediterranean lands. Brock is a contributing member to several research and teaching institutions located in the Mediterranean, including the American School of Classical Studies in Athens and the Canadian Archaeological Institute in Athens. The Brock Museum of Cypriote Antiquities contains a representative collection of art and artifacts from the Neolithic period to beyond the Roman Empire. The Niagara Peninsula Society of the Archaeological Institute of America, in conjunction with the Department, organizes archaeological programs and lectures. Study tours of Rome are offered jointly by Classics, Visual Arts and other departments. The brochure Classics at Brock contains additional information about the Classics Department and its programs. Students are encouraged to consult the Chair to discuss their educational objectives and career plans.
