Greek and Roman Classics

Students in the Department of Greek and Roman Classics study the cultures and languages of two major civilizations of the ancient Mediterranean world with award-winning faculty.

Classics is an interdisciplinary major involving languages, history, literature, philosophy, archaeology, and art. Students may major in Classical Languages and Literatures or in Classical Civilizations. Award-winning faculty members hold numerous international research fellowships and work one-on-one with undergraduate students. The study of Greek and Roman Classics gives students a rigorous education in the nature of Ancient Greek and Latin languages, in the skills of close reading and textual analysis, and in historical reasoning.

Students in the Department of Greek and Roman Classics study the cultures and languages of two major civilizations of the ancient Mediterranean world. They select from two major concentrations based on their interests and goals:

  • Classical Civilizations
  • ​Classical languages and literature

​Both options offer a sound liberal arts background - skills in critical thinking, reading, and expressing oneself fluently and with cultural sophistication - that prepares students for success in any career.
