Ancient Greek is the language of Homer, Sappho, Plato and the New Testament. Latin is the language of Julius Caesar, Vergil, Ovid and St. Augustine. UVic Greek and Roman Studies offers reading-focused classes in both languages at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Whatever path you follow in later life, knowledge of the ancient languages will be, in the words of Thucydides, a ktȇma es aei—a possession for all time. Virtually all careers require the control of language and the historical perspective that the study of ancient Greece and Rome provides. Our graduates are sophisticated critical thinkers and analysts, as well as strong communicators.
