Classical Studies focuses on understanding the world of the ancient Mediterranean—including Greece, Rome, and surrounding cultures—by studying its languages, history, art, and archaeology. We offer major and minor tracks in Classical Studies, Latin, or Greek, and encourage all students to sample broadly among our offerings even while concentrating in a particular field. In addition to courses taught in the ancient languages, we teach literature in translation; history, art, and archaeology surveys and seminars; and courses on topics as varied as mythology and religion, Roman law, ancient leadership, and gender in the ancient world. Our program focuses on developing skills in critical thinking, reading, and writing, and all majors complete independent research projects. Our students find that exploring the past invites new perspectives on the modern world while opening doors to the future, and recent graduates have pursued advanced studies at the M.A. and Ph.D. level, medical school, law school, the Peace Corps, and careers ranging from teaching, to publishing, to business.

The Department of Classical Studies allows students to design major and minor programs of study with broad exposure or more focused concentration in the fields of language and literature, art and archaeology, and ancient history.Undergraduate Program – more about our undergraduate program
Our full-time M.A. program emphasizes preparation in Latin and Greek and can include coursework in ancient history, archaeology, philosophy, and ancient religion. The program generally requires two years for completion. In the first year, students normally take three courses each semester. In addition, each student who is receiving a stipend serves as a teaching assistant to help a professor with course materials and grading. In the second year, students normally take two courses each semester and work on the M.A. qualifying papers under the direction of a professor.
