Classics, Greek, Latin, Ancient Studies, and Medieval Studies
Classics is the study of the Greeks and Romans—especially their languages (Greek and Latin)—and their interactions with other cultures, from prehistoric through medieval times. Learning classical languages is not only fun and exciting; it also improves students’ verbal and analytical skills and gives them tools for studying the past and evaluating the present. Courses in ancient and medieval literature, history, philosophy, religion, political science, fine arts, and archaeology offer fascinating ways to explore the humanities, both on campus and abroad.
