Classical Studies - Minor

The Minor in Classical Studies is an academic program open to all students in the university. The minor is interdisciplinary in nature and combines courses in Greek or Latin language with electives in multiple disciplines. The focus on the history, beliefs, and material culture of ancient Greek and Roman civilization helps students to see how fundamental concepts of Western Civilization first arose in Classical Antiquity, and is a valuable complement to the academic portfolio of any student majoring in the humanities, social sciences, or natural sciences.
