Classical Studies Minor

Coordinator: Associate Professor Meinking

Classical Studies is an interdisciplinary program of studies in the languages, history, culture and heritage of the ancient and early modern world. This program gives students an opportunity for concentrated study of “classical” ideas and practices, which form an important part of Western civilization. In addition, the program examines the ways that these ideas and practices have influenced and been modified by later generations. A minor in Classical Studies can serve as a valuable complement to many fields, providing depth and context for a student’s other courses, encouraging analytical study of primary sources and allowing the pleasure of reading some of Western civilization’s greatest works.
