Welcome to the Department of Classics
Classics is the gateway to the people, languages, cultures, and legacies of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds.
Are you intrigued by the myths of Heracles and Odysseus, Romulus and Remus? Or are you fascinated by Sappho, Socrates, Caesar, and Cleopatra? Do you want to unearth the past, walk the streets of Pompeii, meet the Olympian gods, and explore the world of early Christianity? Or are you looking to delve into some of the greatest works of philosophy and to examine the ancient models of the US Constitution? Then Classics is for you!
