The Department of Classics offers courses, lectures, and other events that explore the languages, literatures, history and culture of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Our B.A. and M.A. programs in Classics focus on the ancient languages and texts read in the original Greek and Latin, and our PhD program offers specialized study in ancient history, music, performance, and philosophy. The undergraduate program in Ancient Studies allows students to explore the political, cultural, and social history of Greece and Rome, with little or no work in the ancient languages.
