Classics

Explore the ancient world with a Major or Minor in Classical Studies. This interdisciplinary field explores all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman life – history, society, literature, science, religion, and mythology. Study the impact the Classical cultures have had on the world today, and compare those with other ancient world cultures.

To help students develop their own interests, we offer a choice of three tracks emphasizing Classical languages (Latin and ancient Greek), literature and culture, or material culture and history.
