Concentration Description

The Classics concentration is an interdisciplinary humanities field. We provide instruction in the Greek and Latin languages and in the Greek and Roman civilization, literature, mythology and religion. Faculty offer courses in diverse aspects of the Greek and Roman world and mentor students in the acquisition of specific applied skills through their studies. The Classics section combines the intimacy of a small liberal arts college with the wide-ranging educational and professional possibilities of a large state university. This concentration is of special interest to students who wish to teach Latin and Greek at the pre-college level, and to those who plan graduate study in a humanistic discipline including law and medicine.

All undergraduate students in any degree program can participate in undergraduate research. There are a number of options to receive academic credit for a mentored research experience and to have the experience show on the official transcript. Students who wish to enroll in an undergraduate research course should consult with their academic advisor to understand how the credit will apply towards the degree requirements. If no credit is needed, students may be eligible to enroll in the 0-credit IDS 2912 or IDS 4914 courses.
