Abstract

Classical studies have been taught around the world as an approach to introduce the great civilization of Greek and Roman. Both civilizations have become models for knowledge construction and nation building. In order to explore the classical studies, this study aims to examine courses and programs which have been provided by colleges and universities in Western Countries i.e., Occidental Region. Courses and programs will be discussed as a main focus in this study. This study was conducted online over a period of three months. About 240 classical departments have been analyzed particularly and every batch of information provided by classical department is presented in the results. It is observed that two courses and programs are offered by colleges and universities according to their mission and vision of the university, region and also the needs of students and education policy. The analyses show that courses and programs in classics offered by departments depend on the needs of such departments to sustain classical studies as a catalyst for knowledge construction and nation building.
