Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives


Welcome to the Classics Program

Southwestern offers Majors in Classics, Latin, and Greek (and a Latin minor and Greek minor).


Classics students engage in an integrative course of study that gives them the flexibility to excel in a variety of careers. Some of our students go on to further study in Classics, but these rigorous majors are parts of a beautiful tapestry that set you up for careers in medicine, law, business, and many others. As a first year Latin student has put it, “Latin is such an integrated part of our language that paideia connections are everywhere, even when we don’t notice them.”
