Why study classics?

So many aspects of our modern society are rooted in ancient Greece and Rome. By studying these ancient societies, we can have a better understanding of our own society and of the modern world.

We cover the full range of classical fields of study: archeology, history and literature.

You'll gain important skills: the study of the Greek and Latin languages is one of the best methods for learning the principles of English grammar and vocabulary and the art of clear, concise expression.
