Fall 2018 Course Offerings


The Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies is pleased to offer two courses this fall. Enrollment is open to anyone in the Buffalo community interested in learning. No papers or tests, but much good discussion! Courses are not part of any Canisius College degree program. All classes meet in Science Hall 1017 on the Canisius campus. Parking available. Each six-session course costs $60. Easy registration and payment (credit, debit, or check) through the Canisius Marketplace.
