Majors

The Classics Department offers a number of unique experiences for undergraduates. Our smaller classes offer an intimate learning environment and the chance to form close working relationships with professors. A lively group of majors and minors provides a social and intellectual community through the Classics Club. Classics students have an excellent record obtaining support for independent student research, and some are currently engaged in preparing their own books for on-line and Print-on-Demand publication. Every spring Classics students gain valuable organizational experience through running the Undergraduate Classics Conference, the first of its kind, which attracts students from other universities across the country.

A Classics major is one of the most highly regarded liberal arts degrees, emphasizing careful reading, writing, and critical thinking skills that you will use throughout your life, whatever career path you choose.
