All Classical Studies

For many centuries, Classical Greek and Latin were considered an indispensable part of any education. This was not just as a means of communication, but because learning those languages is an aid to structured thinking.​Classical studies continue this tradition, including at some well-known Italian and Greek universities. Not only languages are studied, but also ancient literature, mythology, and history. This often serves as an introduction to related subjects like theology and philosophy. ​Even if not aimed at some practical purpose, such as a career in tourism or performing arts, a classical studies qualification is seen as a solid liberal arts education. Earning one indicates to employers and the world at large that the student is skilled in research, critical thinking, written and verbal communication, and related skills.
