About the major

The Classical Studies major offers students an interdisciplinary approach to the classics. Successful completion of the major leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree. The program combines a linguistic focus (on Latin) with extensive training in a variety of disciplines pertaining to Greek and Roman antiquity. Students will be able to choose from courses in ancient art, classical literature, ancient history, ancient philosophy, and related fields. This major helps prepare students for graduate study of classics, ancient history, archaeology, and museum studies.

The major consists of a minor in Latin (18 hours) plus another 24 hours minimum. A portfolio of three sample papers from three different disciplines from courses taken for the major must be submitted at the completion of the program.
