2014 McGill Summer Institute in Classical Studies

Now in its third year, the Institute offers students at all levels a unique opportunity to develop their understanding of the ancient world. Located within the heart of Montreal, Canada, the Institute is ideal for those students who are seeking to spend a summer studying in a culturally dynamic and bilingual city. The Institute is also suited for those considering a degree at McGill or those wishing to gain experience in a collegiate setting as preparation for university. An intensive introductory course in Latin is complemented by classes on classical mythology and ancient civilization, with an aim of fostering the understanding of ancient Mediterranean history and culture. McGill University stands at the foot of Mount Royal in downtown Montreal, and is in close proximity to Ottawa and Quebec City. As such, the Institute integrates many of the cultural offerings from these vibrant cities into its program.
