Summer Institute in Classical Studies
Now in its second 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 university credits over the summer, those considering an undergraduate 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 the culturally dynamic and bilingual city of 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.
We believe that university and high school students from New England and New York would be very interested in this opportunity. High school and AP credit are negotiable for students on a per school basis. We will provide copies of syllabifor teachers 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 Serratijohn.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
