Monash offers students a vibrant and engaging introduction to the life, culture and language of the ancient Greeks and Romans. No prior knowledge of classical studies is expected when undergraduates enter the program.
First-year level sequences are offered in Latin and classical cultural studies incorporating classical mythology and Greek and Roman life and culture (all texts are studied in translation).
Completion of a major or minor provides students with the opportunity to further their language studies in Latin and Ancient Greek, or develop their studies in classical culture through units on ancient Greek theatre and ancient Greek epic, Eros and the body, and performing Rome.
