Classics, Minor

Program Overview

The core of all our Classics minors is the study of the languages and literatures of ancient Greece and Rome and the societies that spoke Greek and Latin until the end of the ancient world (usually taken as the 5th century of the Common Era). We have three different concentrations: Greek, Latin, or Classical Civilization (the latter requiring no language proficiency). These different concentrations uniquely offer exposure to a range of approaches: literary, philological, historical, archaeological, art historical, philosophical, and anthropological. In addition, we now offer several courses on the Ancient Near East and Egypt for a wider perspective on the ancient world.
