Welcome to the Classics Department
We offer language and advanced reading courses in Latin and ancient Greek, in addition to a range of courses on ancient culture taught entirely in English. The Classical Studies undergraduate program offers a Classics major, minors in Latin and Ancient Greek, and an interdisciplinary minor in Ancient Civilization. At the graduate level, the department supports a small Master of Arts program.
Classics includes the study of language and creative literature, of political and social history, of economics and law, of philosophy, religion, and art, and of the material remains of the ancient world.
The undergraduate curriculum is designed to provide students with access to ancient civilizations regardless of their prior experience. Courses are offered at all levels, both in the classical languages and English, allowing students to choose what form suits them best.
