Bachelor of Arts in Classics

Classics is the study of the momentous achievements of ancient Greeks and Romans in literature, politics, language, philosophy, art, law, religion, sports, and technology — achievements which laid the basis for much of Western culture today.

In the classics program, students have the opportunity to learn about the realities of life in a culturally complex world in which not everyone was a king and every activity was not the sole province of men. A major in classics can prepare students for law school, medical school, graduate degrees, careers in government, and more.
