Explore Classical Languages, Literature and Civilizations

The Department of Greek and Roman Classics is the vibrant home to a host of dedicated faculty members and engaging undergraduate majors. Both of our program options offer a sound liberal arts background — skills in critical thinking, reading and expressing oneself fluently and with cultural sophistication — that prepares students for success in any career. They select from two major concentrations based on their interests and goals:

  • Classical Civilizations
  • Classical Languages and Literature
