Department of Classics

Greek, Latin, Latin Education, Ancient Studies, Medieval Studies

The Department of Classics at St. Olaf College offers a full range of courses in the languages, literature, and culture of ancient Greece and Rome.

Our five majors are GreekLatinClassics (Greek and Latin combined), Ancient Studies, and Medieval Studies (note that Ancient and Medieval studies are both interdisciplinary majors, each with a core of required courses; students design the rest of the major themselves by selecting courses from different departments).

Classics students often complete a second major in a field such as art history, English, history, mathematics, music, religion, or one of the sciences.
