Greek and Roman Studies

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Why choose Greek and Roman Studies?


Greek and Roman Studies scholars ask questions such as: Why were Roman baths socially significant? What role did women play in ancient Greek funerals? Why was Caligula assassinated?

Greek and Roman Studies scholars examine the civilizations of the Mediterranean area, the Near East, and Western Europe in ancient and medieval times. During the course of your studies, you'll gain research and analytical capabilities, written communication skills, and experience studying and interpreting textual and material remains that have survived from antiquity.

Career opportunities

​As a Greek and Roman Studies graduate, you'll be prepared for career opportunities in areas such as the civil service, the non-profit sector, and the business world. A degree in Greek and Roman Studies can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.

Program highlights

Arts and Science Honours Academy (ASHA) - A six-course interdisciplinary program with a second language aspect and travel components.


Courses in this program

Comparative Mythology, Late Roman Antiquity, Roman Religion, Rome: The Late Republic and Early Empire, ​Introduction to Greece and Rome


We study the ancient Mediterranean world through its language, art, literature, history, architecture, and physical remains. These traditions form much of the foundation of modern Western culture. Students will not only be able to study some of the great myths and societies of the ancient world, but also see how so much of what the ancient Greeks and Romans developed and bequeathed to later traditions continues to have relevance today.
