To introduce classical studies, with particular focus on archaeology and cultural heritage, as a bridge that connects the past with the future.
To enhance students’ critical thinking and decision-making skills.
To support efforts towards understanding the fields of archaeology and cultural heritage as they relate to the profession of an archaeologist/researcher.
To raise consciousness about identity and the connection of diaspora to its roots by looking at present-day culture via the past.
