We offer an undergraduate program leading to a BA and have a graduate body of students pursuing MA and PhD degrees in Classics with special concentrations in Greek and Latin literature, history, philosophy, and linguistics. The department offers intensive undergraduate language courses in ancient Greek, classical Latin, and Sanskrit.

Graduate students receive intensive training in methodologies appropriate to their special areas of concentration, reading and analysis of Greek and Roman texts, and in the secondary literature. The faculty members' interests and publications include many diverse subjects, giving students a wide range of areas from which to choose to satisfy the requirements for the PhD. The Doctor of Philosophy in Classics is integrated into the Joint Graduate Program in Classics, Philosophy and Ancient Science.
