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.

Summer courses for June and July 2014:

CLAS 203 Greek Mythology
CLAS 206 Classics and Modern Media
CLAS 210 Introductory Latin

Upon completion, students shall receive a formal attestation and a certificate from McGill University.

Students from several different levels would be very interested in this opportunity. AP credit is negotiable for students on a per school basis. To facilitate transfer credit, we will provide copies of syllabi for institutions as requested. Housing options are available to students who require on-campus accommodations for the duration of the course(s) at McGill.

Interested students, parents, and teachers should contact Prof. John Serrati at john.serrati@mcgill.ca for more information.
