Classics (BA and minor)
The field of Classics encompasses the study of ancient Greek and Roman civilization. An important focus of Classics is the study of the Greek and Latin languages. Classics also includes study of ancient Greek and Roman literature, history, philosophy, archaeology.
Anyone interested in developing a greater understanding of the languages, culture and history of the Ancient World should consider either a major or minor in Classics. Classics also makes a great addition to almost any other major. Classics is an integral part of the study of History, Political Science, Philosophy, Literature, and Christianity. Furthermore, it provides practical skills and valuable training for those pursuing careers in the Medical and Legal professions. Whatever path you are pursuing, Classics can help.
Students majoring in Classics can follow any of three different tracks: a Civilization track (with more focus on history and culture and less on languages), a Languages track (with more focus on Greek and Latin), a Latin track (with more focus on Latin), and we also offer a minor in Latin.
