Welcome to the Classics Program
Southwestern offers Majors in Classics, Latin, and Greek (and a Latin minor and Greek minor).
The Classics Program’s broad range of experiences prepares you for a variety of careers. While some of our students go on to further study in Classics, professional schools and business schools recognize that Classics is a rigorous major, which provides a serious intellectual foundation for work in any field. You can read various testimonials by clicking here.

For nearly two decades, SU classics students have been part of a national conversation, thanks to Sunoikisis, a national consortium of Classics programs operating under the auspices of Harvard University’s Center for Hellenic Studies in Washington, D.C. For a sample of a Sunoikisis class in action, click here (start at 21:14).
