About the Department of Classical Studies

The Department of Classical Studies (CLAS) offers majors in ancient Greek, Latin, and classical civilization leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree, as well as minors in ancient Greek, Latin, and classical civilization. The majors and minors in ancient Greek and Latin provide students the opportunity to study Greek and Latin literatures and cultures in the original languages. The classical civilization majors and minors offer students with little or no knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages the opportunity to explore either the art and archaeology or culture and literature of ancient Greece and Rome.
