Affiliation: Interdisciplinary Studies

Regardless of what major you’re pursuing, the interdisciplinary classical studies minor can add breadth and depth to a degree. Pursue answers to the questions that spark your curiosity as you explore ancient Greek and Roman worlds and their tremendous influence on later societies, up to and including our modern civilization.

A background in classics is especially beneficial if you’re interested in advanced study in politics, religion, English and comparative literature. It also lays a strong foundation for law, medicine, seminary and professional degrees.
