Classical Studies majors gain a fundamental knowledge of ancient Greek, Roman, and Mediterranean culture by studying classical languages and literatures, art history, ancient history, archaeology, philosophy, and comparative literature. Students develop proficiency in Latin or Ancient Greek, or can opt to pursue the newly developed major track in Modern Greek Studies (CS-MGK).
Small class sizes, emphasis on critical thinking and expression and a faculty committed to involvement in lower-level undergraduate courses make this major appealing to students who want excellent preparation for entry to professional schools (e.g., medicine or law). The department teaches over 100 students in the major and 90 in the minor, making it one of the largest undergraduate Classics programs in the nation.
