Ancient and Classical Studies

Beyond the relics — wrestling with ethical issues

Our Ancient and Classical Studies Program helps students dig into the roots of modern cultures as they explore the language, literature, art, history, and culture of ancient societies, particularly in ancient Greece and Rome. Students in this major have a unique opportunity to spend a May term in Greece, where they travel throughout the Greek mainland, the Peloponnese and surrounding islands, studying the art and archaeology of Greece at some of the most important historical sites of the region.

Introductory and intermediate courses in Greek and Latin are also offered by this department.
