About the Program

Classics today is a rich interdisciplinary field of study, embracing the study of not only the Greek and Latin languages and literature, but also some 2,000 years of ancient Mediterranean civilizations: the Aegean Bronze Age, classical Greece, the Roman Republic and Empire, the early Christian world, and late antiquity.

The study of the liberal arts is itself a classical ideal, and each succeeding generation has discovered new sources of inspiration in classical art, religion, philosophy, language, law, and science. A classical education broadens one’s horizons in space and time, provides models for understanding both remote cultures and our own, and furnishes a lifelong basis for future reading and thought in diverse areas.
