Department of Classical Studies
Classical Studies offers you the opportunity to explore and enjoy the ancient cultures of Greece and Rome. Whether your interests lie in the people themselves, or in their art, their literature, their history, as long as you want to learn more about the great classical forerunners of western culture, our Department has much to offer you. Here you will find some of the most interesting, unusual, and significant course material for an understanding of the ancient Mediterranean world as a parent of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the modern western world, presented to you in a variety of class types and teaching techniques.
