Welcome

WELCOME

The DEPARTMENT is a friendly and supportive intellectual community which gives students a rigorous training in the languages, literatures, and cultures of Ancient Greece and Rome. Our faculty are passionate teachers and highly active researchers, with clusters of specialization in these areas: gender and sexuality; Greek and Roman drama; Latin poetry of the imperial period; Greek and Latin historiography and ethnography; animal studies; reception. Close interaction between faculty and students, individual attention, and the unmatched resources of the Classics Library and the collections of ancient art and other objects from classical antiquity in the museums on campus provide unique advantages for the pursuit of classical studies.
