Field of Study:Ancient/Classical Greek Language and Literature
Description:Classics offers the unique opportunity to gain new perspective on our language, literature, culture, and political structure by examining their roots in ancient Greece and Rome. These classical civilizations provided the cultural foundations of the western world, as well as the basis of many other elements of our modern life. Guided by a supportive faculty, students explore all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman civilization and are introduced to Latin and Greek, which provides the ability to study ancient texts in their original language. The study of classics helps students develop a broad perspective. It also cultivates the capacity to write clearly, an ability to balance different viewpoints, and a talent for critical analysis.

The study of ancient Greek language and literature offers an opportunity to experience ideas and important texts in their original language. Greek includes both beginner and intermediate studies of the ancient language, as well as the exploration of Greek literature. No previous knowledge of the language is required.
