Classics is the study of the ancient Greek and Roman world, its languages, its cultures, and their impact on later cultural traditions.
Our evolving understanding of these concepts (e.g. "ancient," “culture,” “Roman”) gives our discipline dynamism, while a common body of texts function as its shared center. Classics is also interested in how later peoples understood and transformed this inheritance, generating the rich Classical tradition in literature and the other arts.
The new classics.sites will feature student and faculty work and experiences in the department, as well as provide timely updates about our program! Our department website still includes program requirements, faculty bios, and more.
