Classical Studies Departmental Information

The Department of Classical Studies is concerned with every aspect of the worlds of the ancient Greeks and Romans — their languages and literatures, art and material cultures, philosophy, history, daily life, law and justice, political theory, and religion. The works and thoughts of the Greeks and Romans provide focus and historical perspective to questions which are heatedly debated in our time, making this field of study exciting and intellectually engaging. An ideal liberal arts education, Classical Studies is an excellent way to develop analytical abilities, to learn to make careful arguments and express them lucidly, as well as come to a solid understanding of some of the greatest monuments of human thought and art.
