About the Program
Classical studies students explore interrelated disciplines with the goal of understanding everything possible about the world of the ancient Greeks and Romans (classic Greek and Latin) - classical Greek and Roman philosophy, art, archaeology, and mythology. Classical Studies includes some of the best in literary genres, such as the first European epics, Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. To offer this broad kind of understanding, a well-rounded program in classical studies teaches not only the literature and linguistics of the ancients but their history, philosophy, and art, and archaeology. Classical studies majors are well-informed citizens who think critically and have a global understanding.
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.
