Description: The very idea of university–the systematic study of logic, theology, science, philosophy, medicine–has its roots in ancient Greece. Studying the philosophy, literature, history and languages of ancient Greece and Rome forms the core of our program, but Classics is a crossroads between Western and Eastern thought. We examine how the fundamental ideas, beliefs, and institutions formed when Greek and Middle Eastern cultures met thousands of years ago. Through us, you can learn Latin, ancient Greek, and modern Arabic. Modern languages are full of words deriving from Greek and Latin, and classical myths have inspired everything from Shakespearean drama to Disney films.

Students must complete the faculty requirements for a major. These requirements include 36 to 54 credit hours in Classics at or above the 2000 level; including 18 credit hours at the 3000 level or higher. Students are encouraged to take two language courses in Greek and/or Latin.
