The classical studies minor at the University of Southern Indiana is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on all aspects of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds. Coursework in art history, English, world languages, history and philosophy are included in the program.
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. The minor also prepares students for graduate studies in classics, history, comparative literature, art history, philosophy or archaeology.
Study abroad and archaeological excavation opportunities are available in Greece, Italy and Cyprus. Contact the program director for more information.
