“The Brock Classics MA program stands out because of its young, dynamic, and engaged faculty. There’s a real emphasis on teaching here, both in and out of the classroom. Students have the opportunity to engage with faculty not only in the classroom, but also in our offices and hallways, in our Cypriote Museum, and especially with our annual research and study programs in the Mediterranean.” – Dr. Roberto Nickel, Graduate Program Director

The Master of Arts in Classics emphasizes a holistic approach to the Greek and Roman worlds and engages students in the study of languages, literature, history, and material culture. Students continue their study of Greek and Latin in order to ensure that they can access the wealth of literary and documentary sources which have survived and still continue to surface. The program also assigns prominence to historical context and material culture, especially promoting active archaeological research and travel to the Mediterranean. The program is structured on the principle that these diverse approaches inform one another and produce a cross disciplinary, well rounded and thus broader understanding of the world and legacy of the Greeks and Romans.
Upon completion of coursework, students have the opportunity to spend a semester in Athens through an internship program with the Canadian Institute in Greece.
