The Department of Classical Studies offers a wide variety of courses in the languages and culture of both the ancient world and modern Greece. Students may choose a concentration or a minor that emphasizes archaeology, classical civilization, or the language and literature of Latin and/or Greek (ancient or modern). While many of our courses involve language training, others are taught in English translation. We have close ties with other departments, including History, Philosophy, History of Art, Comparative Literature, and Ancient Civilizations and Biblical Studies. We encourage students to participate fully in the life of the Department and to use the Department’s many resources. We also provide many opportunities to pursue research, field work, and study abroad. Courses in Ancient Greek, Latin, and Modern Greek can be used to fulfill the LSA Language Requirement.
