Classics focuses on the languages, literature, history, and culture of Greco-Roman antiquity. It provides specialized training for students intending to enter graduate school, and a broad liberal education for those with more general interests. Students may choose to study Ancient Greek, Latin, Sanskrit, or Modern Greek and gain knowledge in literature, mythology, ancient history, philosophy, and religion.
The Department of Classics provides instruction in Ancient Greek, Latin, Sanskrit, and Modern Greek languages, literatures, history, culture, and philosophy. Our department offers an undergraduate degree in Classics that includes several optional “tracks” and graduate degrees in Classics, Ancient History, or Sanskrit.
