Classics

Associate Professor Holland (Chair); Professors Hook, Mills; Associate Professor Butera, Senior Lecturer Taylor

The department offers three concentrations: Classical Languages & Literatures; Classical Civilization; and Latin with Teacher Licensure. All programs draw on a common core of material, but their emphases are different, and all aim to give the student as complete a background in Greco-Roman culture as possible. Strong emphasis is placed both on acquiring the linguistic skills necessary to be able to read the ancient texts in their original languages and on gaining an understanding of the cultures in which Western culture is firmly rooted. A Classics degree is inherently interdisciplinary, provides excellent general intellectual training, and does not limit the student to any one future career.
