Classical Languages and Literature
You can study at least a year of Latin with us, to achieve basic proficiency of the grammar and reading vocabulary. In future years, we would hope to restore some study options for Ancient Greek also. (Currently students interested in doing further years of study in either language may be able to do so, most conveniently, with the UNE. Please talk to our languages co-ordinator, Dr Jacqueline Clarke, for further advice and more information.)
Here in Adelaide, we also offer a course on poetry and how it was used to convey extreme emotional states in the ancient world, in which all texts are studied in English translations. You can also explore ancient literature in translation in our first year courses. But you will need proficiency in either or both ancient languages to specialise in Latin or Ancient Greek language and/or literature at Honours or postgraduate level in the Classics Discipline.
