|Description:||Greek and Roman Studies (also known as Classics) is the study of all aspects of ancient Greece and Rome, including literature, language, history, philosophy, mythology, religion, social and economic life, technology, art, architecture, and archeology. The discipline is constantly evolving as new discoveries are made and modern methodological approaches are employed. In recent years, many classicists have focused on social, economic, and political issues, such as the nature of the ancient family, the position of women, and the role of patronage and cultural manipulation in the acquisition and maintenance of political power.
The Greek and Roman Studies program offers you a wide range of courses on aspects of ancient Greek and Roman civilization (Classical Civilization) that have left their mark on later eras. You have the opportunity to learn the ancient Greek and Latin languages, to study ancient literature in the original languages or in translation, to take courses exploring the classical traditions in the humanities (history, literature, religion, art, and philosophy), and to benefit from the expertise of Carleton scholars who have a rich variety of interests and area of specialty.
