Overview

Classical Studies ultimately touches upon almost every field of human inquiry. Indeed, the Western cultural tradition begins with the achievements of the ancient Greeks and Romans in a wide range of fields including politics, literature, art, and philosophy.

The Program in Classical Studies draws on the faculty of various departments in the College of Liberal Arts and acknowledges the importance of approaching the civilizations of the ancient Mediterranean world from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

Minor

The Minor in Classical Studies aims to help students expand the depth and scope of their knowledge of ancient cultures and learn about different approaches to them. It will be of particular interest to those students majoring in anthropology, art, art history, history, modern languages, music, philosophy, political science, or theatre arts. In addition to these majors, students who intend to pursue graduate or professional studies in medicine, the law, art, classics, Biblical studies, ancient Near Eastern studies, or medieval studies will find a Minor in Classical Studies to their advantage.

Students seeking a minor in Classical Studies should first consult with advisors in their departments or programs for approval of the minor, then with the Director of Classical Studies. Students may combine courses in Classical Studies in various ways to comprise the following four minor options:
