Welcome to the website of the Classics Programme on the Howard
College Campus of the University of KwaZulu-Natal!
Classics opens the doors of opportunity to our students by
offering a diverse range of courses that are rooted in classical times but
require the application of modern analytical skills. The Classics Programme has
LIBRARY (known as the Whiteley Library). Our students are
enthusiastic about the subject they have chosen to study. For a student essay on
why Classics is an important subject today click
We offer a range of exciting and dynamic courses to suit a new
era in the study of the Classics. The courses on offer allow students not only
to develop an appreciation for the classical civilisations but also to equip
themselves with important skills required in any sphere of their professional
lives. Information Technology plays an important part in the understanding of
course material and this site is just one example of the ways in which students
are encouraged to use technology as part of their Classics courses. At
third-level, students even have the opportunity to design their own website that
revolves around a Classics theme.
The Department of Classics is also home to the Museum of
Archaeology. The museum houses a number of pieces of classical artifacts
including pottery and jewelry.
