The Department of Classical Studies offers courses in the languages, literatures, history, and archaeology of ancient Greece and ancient Rome, two cultures that are the intellectual, social, political, legal, scientific, and artistic origin of Western civilization. Along with the Hebrew Bible, the scholarly study of these cultures, which goes back to the death of Alexander the Great, is the original subject of university study. Their brilliance and beauty have not ceased to beguile and inform students for more than two thousand years. Learning Goals The Department of Classical Studies is fundamentally interdisciplinary offering courses in the languages, literatures, history, art, archaeology, mythology, and religions of ancient Greece and Rome. These two classical cultures provide intellectual, social, political, legal, medical, philosophical, scientific, and artistic origins of Western civilization. Undergraduate students are afforded a great variety of choice, since the field is wide and deep, thus fostering their intellect and creativity. Taken together and explored either through traditional or interdisciplinary approaches, the topics in Classical Studies offer undergraduate students a detailed knowledge of life in the ancient Mediterranean, Near East, northern Europe, and north Africa over a period of more than 4,000 years (3,000 B.C.E. to 1,000 C.E.). Students are given the opportunity to learn both from the great literary works of each culture in the original languages, ancient Greek and Latin, or in translation, and from the historical and archaeological records of these cultures. The subjects of inquiry range from iconic art and architecture like the Parthenon frieze, the dome of the Pantheon, or the Colosseum, right down to the nitty-gritty concerns of everyday life, like gender and sexuality, slavery, prostitution, medical practices, and diseases. This program based on Greek or Latin languages and literatures. In addition to Greek or Latin languages and literatures), there are Classics (Greek and Latin languages and literatures), Classical Archaeology and Ancient History (less emphasis on language) also available.
