Whether you are "good at languages" or not, whether your interests lie in people themselves, or in their art, their literature, their political institutions, or their language, as long as you want to learn more about the great classical forerunners of Western culture, our department has much to offer you. Here you will find some of the most interesting, unusual and significant course material for an understanding of the ancient world as a parent of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and our modern way of life, presented to you in a variety of class types and teaching techniques.
Classes on the whole are kept small, so that there is much opportunity for useful and interesting discussion and conversation, in or out of class, with fellow students and with faculty members.
Even if you do not intend to major in Classical Studies, we welcome you in any of our courses. No matter how many or how few courses you decide to take, we will endeavour to make the classical past alive and significant for you.
