Classical studies

Nau mai haere mai

The classical studies area of Social Sciences Online provides curriculum and assessment information, resources, and useful links to support the teaching and learning of classical studies in years 11–13.

Classical studies is a multidisciplinary learning area in which students learn about the literature, art, history, and philosophy of the classical world.

It involves the study of the civilisations of classical Greece and Rome without studying the classical languages, Greek and Latin. Drawing on the traditions and pedagogies of literary subjects, art history, history, and philosophy is central to classical studies.
