Learn the languages of antiquity and discover how the foundation of civilization can inform solutions for problems in the modern world. The Bachelor of Arts in Classics examines the languages, literature, cultures, art, history, religion and material remains of the ancient Mediterranean world and their ongoing impact. With the Classical Languages emphasis, students acquire language proficiency in Greek or Latin and are introduced to a broad spectrum of ancient literature. Students graduate with strong skills in critical thinking and problem-solving, along with the agility to balance detailed analysis with big-picture perspectives.
