The study of our classical heritage from the Greeks and the Romans is not only exciting, it gives students the tools that will help them succeed in a wide range of future careers. Classics incorporates practically every aspect and discipline of the liberal arts tradition: history, literature, religion, philosophy, art, culture and language.

The major in Classics strives to involve students in an investigation into the foundations of Western Civilization, which are to be discovered in our Greco-Roman heritage. Without the broad perspective that a solid grounding in the origins of Western culture provides, we, as inheritors of that tradition, cannot meaningfully engage in an intelligent dialogue with other cultures and attitudes....
