Minor: Classical Civilization
The field of Classics embraces Greek and Roman culture from the prehistoric to the medieval periods. Through the study of classical archaeology, students acquire a broad understanding of Greek and Roman sites and material culture. Although grounded in the study of Greek and Roman buildings, tools, and objects, the courses stress the cross-cultural influences and interactions that informed how people produced, used, and valued these materials as well. Through the study of classical literature in the original language and in English translation, and through the study of other areas encompassed by the classics, such as ancient history, philosophy, art history, mythology, and rhetoric, a student gains an understanding of the culture and ideals of the classical world and their influence on the languages and institutions of Western civilization.
