Classical Studies

« Back to Learning Programmes

Many of Western culture’s roots can be traced back to Ancient Greece and Rome. Classical Studies looks into the lives, beliefs and creations of the people of these civilisations. Not only has much of our literature, language, art and architecture been developed from the classical world, but its influence can be seen in science, mathematics, laws and systems of government as well. By comparing our modern ways of living with these origins, we can gain a greater understanding of the current world and its influences. Classical Studies is a multi-disciplinary subject, which covers topics including politics, religion and philosophy. Ākonga gain a wide range of historical knowledge and cultural insight while developing their analytical, critical and research skills.
