Classical Studies

Classical Studies offers an interdisciplinary lens into the languages, history, cultures, and enduring relevance of the ancient Mediterranean world and beyond. Students both explore “classical” ideas and practices as well as investigate the ways in which diverse traditions inform our present socio-historic moment. A major in Classical Studies serves as a valuable complement to many fields and prepares students for life beyond Elon by enhancing skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, intercultural competency, and communication. Students must choose between a focus in Ancient Civilizations or a focus in Ancient Languages.
