Classics and Greek Studies

Classics majors experience the world of the ancient Greeks and Romans through language, literature, art, and archaeology. By reading texts in the original language, students gain a direct insight into the minds and hearts of those who lived long ago. A major in Classics instills humanistic values and teaches students to read and think clearly and critically, forming a solid foundation of knowledge while fostering the adaptability required in today’s rapidly changing world.

“Offering rigorous training in the humanities, the Classics can build a strong foundation for success in graduate and pre-professional programs. The study of ancient Greece and Rome helps students develop the analytical and critical thinking skills necessary for lifelong intellectual inquiry and career advancement in a variety of fields.”
