Classics

What is classics?

Classics is the study of the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations from which our own modern civilization has developed and by which our society continues to be conditioned. Students in classics study Greek and Roman societies in all their aspects including language, literature, history, philosopy, science and technology.

Classics at Memorial

Classics is the oldest academic discipline, with its traditions stretching back into antiquity itself. Modern western culture grows from these ancient roots, and knowledge of classical antiquity provides students with a broad cultural vocabulary, which helps them to understand western literature, laws and cultural institutions.
