The Learning Environment

The department of Classics offers lecture courses on the archaeology, culture, history, and literature of ancient Greece and Rome, and smaller language classes (in Latin and ancient Greek) that emphasize class participation. 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. Instructors in lecture classes use technology to make the ancient Mediterranean world more concrete and vivid.

About Our Faculty

The department also serves as home to the journal Arethusa, an internationally recognized periodical devoted to the publication of scholarship in classical studies. Other editorial affiliations by members of the faculty have included positions with American Journal of Archaeology and Classical World. The department allows advanced graduate students to teach select classes.
