Majoring & Minoring

 

paestumathena.gifStudents may major in Classics (which includes the study of Greek, Latin, and Classics in translation), Greek, or Latin, and can minor in Greek or Latin.

The Classics major exposes students to both languages of the Graeco-Roman world, plus a range of courses in ancient history, philosophy, culture, art, and archaeology.

The major and minor in Latin enable students to study Sunoikisisthe literature and culture of the Roman world, from the formative years of the Republic to the expansion and power of the Empire.

At the head of Greek literature stand the Homeric epics, followed by equally fascinating literature of the archaic, classical, and helleinstic periods.
