The major program in Classical Civilization is designed to afford access to the achievements of at least one of the two primary cultural groups of Greco-Roman antiquity through significant coursework in one language and a core group of courses in classical civilization.

The department offers four majors: Greek, Latin, Classics, and Classical Civilization. The first three are designed to afford access to the achievements of Greek and Roman antiquity through mastery of the ancient languages. The Classics major is a combination of the two languages in any proportion as long as no fewer than two semester courses are taken in either.
