Have a class with classical studies

Latin prose, poetry, and non-literary texts had been forming the culture and civilization of Europe, and therefore the world, for a thousand years. The programme provided by the Department of Classical Studies at Masaryk University, will equip not only with the knowledge of the Latin language as such, but also the wide range of texts and genres written in Latin from antiquity throughout the Middle Ages.

Read the works of the old, analyse the structure and find the hidden meanings behind classical and medieval literature and their authors. Why did they write what they did? What were their world-view and opinions, and how these influenced the world as we know it today? You will find answers to all of these questions.

Czech as a bonus

The course is not obligatory but studying books, language, and culture, it is quite certain learning Czech might come in handy. Not to mention that you will be living in the Czech Republic, right?
