Some of the most penetrating, moving, and influential texts in the history of Western civilization arose from the world of ancient Greece. The major in Ancient Greek teaches students to read archaic and classical Greek texts (such as Homer, Sophocles, Euripides, Plato, and Thucydides) in their original language. Students acquire the skills necessary to read and translate these works accurately and also to explore and discuss orally and in writing the meaning of the texts through study of genre, style, cultural context, and the place of individual works in the literary and cultural history of ancient Greece. Study of Ancient Greek provides an excellent foundation for students wishing to pursue the MA in Ancient Greek and for further studies in classical archaeology, philosophy, history, religion and theology, linguistics, English literature, comparative literature, and a wide range of other humanistic disciplines, as well as providing a solid foundation for law school or medical school.
