Building on the allied disciplines of history and archaeology

The classics faculty is convinced that nothing stimulates creativity and imagination as much as the study of ancient thinkers and artists. Many students start taking classics courses out of desire to learn more about their own roots and origins of Western Culture. As they continue, they find their minds growing in new ways that lead to self-understanding and a deeper understanding of our complex world.
