Our students and faculty explore the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome—cultures that are unlike ours in many ways and yet are foundational for the modern world.

Our courses provide a broad perspective of ancient Mediterranean life through the study of literature, history, archaeology, mythology, and religious and social practices, and through the study of Greek and Latin, from introductory language classes to advanced study of some of the world’s most beautiful and profound texts.
