Classics Minor

Classics encompasses the interdisciplinary study of the Greeks and Romans, as well as the ways in which the ancient world's influence extends to the Medieval Period, the Renaissance and the modern world. Studying classics, therefore, is to investigate several thousand years of material through the study of languages, literature, history, politics, law, archaeology, art, mythology and folklore, gender and sexuality, religious studies, philosophy and moreā€”all with methods derived from a variety of humanistic and social science perspectives. This breadth provides an excellent liberal arts education that prepares students for a variety of careers, as well as for further study.
