Centre d'études classiques
The mandate of the Centre d'études classiques (Centre for Classical Studies) is to co-ordinate teaching and research activities in the field of classical studies. It administers 3 faculty programs in Classical Studies: a bachelor's degree, a major and a minor.
Students are invited to learn about the 2 ancient Mediterranean civilizations that shaped Western society. Classical studies essentially comprise 3 disciplines:
- Philology (the study of texts prior to the introduction of printing and publishing)
