2020/21 Course Delivery Online

During Winter 20/21 and Summer 2021 all courses in ARBC, CLST, CNRS, GREK, HEBR, LATN, NEST, and RELG are online. The Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies will not be offering any courses on campus. This is in response to the decision made by the University and the Faculty of Arts in response to COVID-19.

The method of online delivery will not be the same for all courses. Below you will find information on provisional online plans for individual courses, including whether the course will be asynchronous (i.e., no set meeting times), synchronous (i.e., requiring virtual meetings in real-time), or a blend of the two. If no information is available for a particular course or if you need clarification, please write the instructor directly.
