The study of Classics is a rigorous academic program that allows for the development of sharp analytical and critical thinking skills, along with a comprehensive understanding of language and an appreciation for art and culture. Research and writing skills are also paramount.
Graduate courses explore Classical Culture (CLAS) and its legacy from Troy to Augustine and Classical languages. Greek (GREK) and Latin (LATN) are taught at advanced levels. Courses numbered 8000-9999, taught by members of the graduate faculty, are advanced graduate courses and seminars. Students in these courses can expect to complete substantial independent research projects. Courses numbered 6000-6999 are fundamental knowledge courses, such as surveys of ancient literature. Courses numbered 7000-7999, except master’s research (7000) and thesis (7300), are technique and professional courses. These include CLAS 7770, the Latin teaching apprenticeship.
