    The Learning Environment

    The department of Classics offers lecture courses on the archaeology, art, culture, history, and literature of ancient Greece and Rome, and smaller language classes (in Latin and ancient Greek) that emphasize student participation. Study-abroad opportunities in Greece and Italy, as well as participation in archaeological fieldwork, are provided as curricular options. In addition to serving as a base for the Western New York Society of the Archaeological Institute of America, the department also plays a leading role in UB’s Institute for European and Mediterranean Archaeology. Majors must complete a capstone class that draws upon all of the conceptual and analytical skills that they acquired while a major.

    About Our Facilities

    The department of Classics is housed in the Millard Fillmore Academic Center. Classics courses are held in the department’s seminar room and in classrooms located both in MFAC and on the Academic Spine of the North Campus.

    About Our Faculty

    The Department of Jewish Thought is a leading program of its kind and the only Department of Jewish Thought in all of the United States. The faculty consists of nationally and internationally prominent scholars who are also devoted teachers. Their interests include philosophy, literature, Bible and Talmud, ethics, mysticism, and gender and sexuality studies, and much more.

    We encourage students to see professors whose research and area of expertise is of potential interest for them and establish working research relationships with the professor.

    We recommend that students speak to the director of undergraduate studies (703 Clemens Hall, agreen6@buffalo.edu), to plan their individualized course of study.
