Classical Studies Minor

Greek + History + Classics (Myth) and More

Study Across Disciplines


Regardless of what major you’re pursuing, the interdisciplinary classical studies minor can add breadth and depth to your degree. Pursue answers to the questions that spark your curiosity as you explore ancient Greek and Roman worlds and their tremendous influence on later societies, up to and including our modern civilization.

A background in classics is especially beneficial if you’re interested in advanced study in politics, religion, English and comparative literature. It also lays a strong foundation for law, medicine, seminary and professional degrees.

Enhance Your Skill Set

There’s a lot to be learned from classical antiquity. By studying various aspects of ancient Greek and Roman languages and cultures, you develop a sense of how the ancients responded to the universal questions of the human experience. Cultivate your skills of inquiry, analysis, and communication through lively class discussions, study groups, and campus events. Expand your professional network through student organizations like the Classics Club for a chance to meet like-minded peers at meetings and conferences.
