The program in Classics spans the many different aspects of the Greek and Roman world - its languages and literatures, its art and archaeology, its history, its religious and philosophical traditions, its social and legal forms - from the Bronze Age to the period of the late Roman Empire and early Christianity.
For students who pursue a major or minor, classics provides a solid liberal arts education that will be useful in many careers and vital to the development of their full human capacity.
For students in other disciplines, classics offers a valuable opportunity to investigate the works and traditions that have provided much of the background of their own chosen fields. Many find that working with the classical languages improves their skills as readers and writers.
