Classical Studies Program

Committee in Charge

  • Lisa Raphals, Ph.D., Director
  • Benjamin King, Ph.D., Classics
  • Christopher Simon, Ph.D., Classics

The Classical Studies minor offers students a fundamental understanding of classical language and culture which form the basis of much of western civilization. The minor naturally complements liberal arts degrees in many areas, including History, Art History, Philosophy, English, and Religious Studies. Students profit from the skills associated with a degree in the classics, such as enhancement of analytical and critical abilities, communication skills, and verbal proficiency.
