About Us

The Department of Classics offers courses in ancient Mediterranean languages and literatures, including Greek, Latin, and Akkadian, as well as history, archaeology, science and medicine, and other aspects of the cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, the Near East, and Egypt. Our courses also explore how these ancient civilizations continue to influence contemporary language, art, politics, and religion. The study of classical antiquity can serve as a strong base for a liberal arts education, and can be a rewarding supplement to any field, regardless of the student’s eventual career goals. A major or minor in classics can especially enrich programs in law, languages and literatures, medicine, philosophy, religion and history.
