General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Barb Chatwin 905-688-5550, extension 3575 International Centre 309 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 learning about the ancient world. 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 Institute in Greece. 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 in the Mediterranean are offered by Classics jointly with Visual Arts and other departments. Students are encouraged to consult the Chair, Undergraduate Officer or Academic Adviser to discuss their educational objectives and career plans. Students are advised that graduate programs in Classics require competence in Greek and Latin. Those considering graduate work in Classics should plan to go beyond a minimum four GREE/LATI credits.
