Classical Studies at Brown University

Departmental Operations in Light of COVID-19 Crisis

Due to recent updates to the University’s policies as it relates to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the Classics Department, along with the rest of the University, has moved to remote learning.  As such, no Classics or Modern Greek Studies courses will take place in person.  Additionally, there will be no Classics/MGS faculty or administrative staff physically on campus in either Macfarlane House or Wilbour Hall.  If you need to contact the administrative team (the Department Chair, Academic Department Manager, or Administrative Assistant), please email them directly or send a message to [email protected]

Classics @ Brown

Like the discipline itself, which lies at the foundation of the humanities, Brown University’s Department of Classics has a long and distinguished history, stretching from the founding of the University to Brown’s latest initiatives for academic enrichment. Our undergraduate and graduate programs are among the top in the country, and Classics faculty teach courses at all levels in the languages, literatures, and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome, ranging from the beginning through the medieval and Byzantine periods, as well as in Sanskrit and Modern Greek.
