Program overview

Study the oldest discipline in the humanities at UNB, a friendly campus with small class sizes and dedicated professors. Our students work closely with faculty to tailor a personalized course of study that provides a strong basis for entry into leading PhD programs and professional schools. Many Classics and Ancient History graduates go on to make history themselves. The program in Classics benefits from the work of the Centre for Hellenic Studies, which was established in 2007 and is the first of its kind in the Atlantic region and one of a very small number across Canada. The purpose of the Centre is to foster an understanding and appreciation of the impact of Hellenic culture and language on contemporary life across such diverse areas as art, architecture, politics, philosophy, religion, social sciences, law, medicine, and the sciences.
