Tower of the Winds in Athens
'Tower of the Winds,' Roman Agora, Athens

Welcome to the undergraduate section of the Department of Greek and Latin! Our majors spend their days exploring ancient literature, history, art, and archaeology. Many of them pursue a summer or a semester--or even more time than that--abroad. They often double major in other disciplines (Philosophy and History are especially popular); they complete minors in other fields across the university. We count amongst our undergraduates many members of the Honors Program, leaders in campus activities, athletes, and musicians.  They share a collective excitement about studying the ancient world and about the exciting future that it opens up for them!

  • Classical Studies (B.A.)

    Our undergraduate major allows you to take courses on subjects like Greek and Roman history, mythology, literature, and art, along with possible electives in areas like archaeology, philosophy, early Christianity, and art history. Students can choose whether or not to study an ancient language.
