Programs and Admissions

The study of the languages and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome is valuable for those seeking a broad education in the liberal arts or preparing for graduate study in one of the many fields of Classical, Medieval, or Renaissance scholarship. It is also excellent preparation for the advanced study of law and medicine; it is increasingly admired in the business world. Within the general requirements of the major, the Department of the Classics offers individual programs designed to meet the needs and interests of each student. Close interaction between faculty and students, individual attention, tutorial instruction, opportunity for study abroad in Greece and Italy, 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.
