Classical Civilization

Program Description

The Classical Civilization minor allows students to study the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome, including their history, philosophy, religion, archeology, and art history. In addition to comparative genre courses and film courses, Classical Civilization studies also include reception theory, Western traditions, and the vast influence of Greek and Roman myths, literature, and culture on modern literature and theory. The curriculum is flexible and offers students many subjects to choose from: explore the art and architecture of ancient Rome and Greece, study the roots of English vocabulary, or examine ancient Greek philosophy.

Upon graduation, possible career opportunities include teaching, administration, and foreign service; with additional education, careers in library sciences, curation, and law are also possible.
