Classics Minor

Program Description

This minor delves into the literature, history, and culture of ancient Greece and Rome, as well as some features of other pre-modern societies such as ancient Egypt and medieval West Africa. Although Classics is not the name of a job, this minor offers a long-term comparative perspective useful for History, English, Philosophy, or even Political Science. Moreover, this minor includes several courses from other departments as electives to ensure broad-based learning with connections to other disciplines, and it can be easily completed within two academic years.
