UGA Classics explores Greek and Roman culture (material; intellectual; religious) from Troy to Augustine on campus and abroad; Classical languages and literatures (Greek, Latin, and in English translation); and the reception of Classical Antiquity with A.B. and M.A. degrees in Classics with multiple areas of emphasis. Pursuing a degree in Classics promotes 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.
