Certificate in Ancient Languages

The certificate in ancient languages is designed to appeal to students interested in the study of ancient languages and who wish to gain an appreciation for the origin of many modern languages. Ancient languages are languages which are no longer spoken as the first language of any living person, although they may have direct descendants in current use. They remain culturally significant as languages of religion, scholarship and literature.

The certificate offers specialized, high-quality preparation for students interested in studying subjects such as archaeology, classics, history, linguistics, philosophy, and religion. The certificate will also appeal to students studying in the areas of medicine and law, providing them with the etymological roots of subject-specific terminology.
