Classics


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.
