Classics, the study of ancient Greek and Roman civilization, has been an important part of intellectual life at the University of Toronto since its foundation as King's College in 1827. The Department of Classics at the U of T is one of the largest in North America with over 20 faculty and is internationally renowned for the excellence of its undergraduate and graduate programs.

Our diverse faculty study all aspects of the Greek and Roman world: its literature, history, philosophy, art, archaeology and religion, from prehistory to the medieval period. Faculty are cross-appointed to the Philosophy department, the Centre for Medieval Studies, the Centre for Comparative Literature, the Women and Gender Studies Institute, and the Graduate Centre for the Study of Drama, and work with the Jackman Humanities Institute, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Archaeology Centre.

Our graduate alumni include Roger Bagnall, Alan Bowman, Jonathan Burgess, Anne Carson, Eric Csapo, Kathy Gaca, Mark Golden, Brad Inwood, Brian McGing, Donald Mastronarde, Peter Toohey, and Margaret Visser. Located in the neoclassical Lillian Massey Building, the Department is home to the Woodbury Library, with extensive holdings in Greek and Latin, epigraphy and papyrology. The Department of Classics offers programs of unusual breadth and intellectual variety in one of the most culturally diverse cities in North America.
