The subject of classical studies is the study of ancient Greece and Rome. This includes literature, philosophy, history, art, architecture, science, and religion and mythology. The classical studies major is thus quite broad, encompassing language, history, and culture in its fullest sense. Clearly, classical studies students will develop and analyze basic knowledge about the ancient world, especially to gain an appreciation of its breadth and diversity. Students will learn to think across traditional disciplinary boundaries, developing such linguistic skills as reading ancient texts in the original and such critical skills as researching, analyzing, and synthesizing diverse data from fields relevant to classical studies. Students will build on their training in classical studies to make connections to other academic disciplines.
