DescriptionStudying Ancient Greek and Roman civilizations can reveal the answers to some of society’s modern challenges. Classics is the study of the ancient Mediterranean world. It is one of the core topics in the humanities, providing students with a broad perspective on the origins of western literature, art, architecture, philosophy, and religion. Develop insight into what it means to be human within the context of ancient Greek, Roman, and Near Eastern societies. In studying the classics, you will also develop valuable critical thinking and writing skills. The Classics program at Saint Mary’s University focuses on elements of the social history, archaeology, art, and architecture of ancient Greece and Rome.

In Classics, you’ll have the chance to participate in a field school, held at the Roman imperial villa site of San Felice (Puglia), Italy. Get first-hand insight into the nature of imperial landholdings in south Italy, including issues related to commerce and slavery, and the process of cultural changes. You’ll take part in an archaeological research project and learn field and laboratory techniques including excavation, field survey, and artifacts processing, environmental archaeology, photography, drawing, and artifact analysis.
