Bachelor of Arts (BA) majoring in Classics University of New Brunswick




Course info


Travel back in time to ancient Greece and Rome by studying how art, architecture, mythology, history, science, philosophy, and the language of the time have shaped what we now understand as our modern Western world. Using literature and archeology as your guides, you’ll learn about ancient civilizations in a fresh and compelling way.

At UNB, we offer two approaches to the study of classical antiquity. For students intending to pursue the study of ancient Greece and Rome at a graduate level, we offer a program focusing on ancient Greek and Latin languages, and a critical knowledge of the works of ancient authors in their original languages.

For students planning to enter professional roles after the BA, we offer a program of humanities courses, which includes: history, mythology, philosophy, and art history. In either stream, students are invited to enroll in courses in archaeology.

Hands-on learning:

Archaeological students are regularly required to participate in field school overseas
