Classical Studies

Classical studies is an ideal platform for students to explore their interests and gain a wide variety of experiences. Our courses range from Bronze Age archaeology to studies of classical "barbarians;" from ancient mythology to theories of myth and religion; from daily life in Greece and Rome to intensive examinations of the literature, art, and politics of this fascinating period.
