Interdisciplinary Minor in Classics (Foreign Languages and Philosophy)

The minor in Classical Studies provides an interdisciplinary investigation of the culture of the ancient Greek and Latin world: its languages, literature, history, art, drama, philosophy, and religion. Recognizing the achievements of the classical world and its influence on the thought, academic disciplines, and institutions of the western world today, this minor stresses a thorough knowledge and appreciation of the classics in an interdisciplinary context. Drawing on contemporary theoretical approaches, the minor develops students' critical thinking and writing skills. Students who later enter careers as diverse as business, medicine, law, the arts, and humanities can benefit from a study of the classical world, whether their concentration be linguistic, literary, historical, archaeological, philosophical, or artistic.
