Mission Statement

The Classical Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on all aspects of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds.  Faculty from the departments of Art History, English, Foreign Languages, History, and Philosophy all contribute to the program.  As such, students who earn the minor will have a comprehensive background in ancient history, art history, literature, mythology, philosophy, and the Latin language.  Students pursuing a Classical Studies minor will acquire a well-rounded Liberal Arts education and will develop the skills needed to succeed in the modern world.

The Classical Studies minor is designed to serve as a complement to any Liberal Arts major, but will also be very beneficial to students considering a career in law or medicine.


  • Increase student awareness of the rich heritage of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds.
  • Prepare students for a wide variety of careers in which critical thinking and interdisciplinary approaches are essential for success.

The Classical Studies Minor prepares students for:

  • Successful careers in any field where a strong liberal arts background is required.
  • graduate studies in Classics, History, Comparative Literature, Art History, Philosophy, or Archaeology.
