About ancient languages

ACU ancient languages students working together on a laptop

Explore the linguistic phenomena of our ancient past and apply this wisdom to contemporary contexts. Study ancient languages as part of your theology degree and you’ll learn more than how to decipher and apply writings from antiquity. You'll get up close with ancient religious texts, and develop tools to decipher their many meanings. These tools can then be adapted to a wide range of vocations and careers long after you graduate.

Explore worlds of words

Rediscover past stories and wisdom. As an ancient languages student, you'll learn to read and translate original texts and build your knowledge of past alphabets, syntaxes and vocabularies. Ancient languages studied include:

  • Biblical Hebrew
  • New Testament Greek
  • Ecclesiastical Latin
  • Medieval Latin
