Classics 

(student-designed)

The surviving works of literature and art inherited from classical Greece and Rome have been foundational to western European culture. From the classical world have come the patterns within which intellectual thought has developed, the models from which canons of aesthetic excellence have been formed, and the languages in which many important literary works were written. The classical world is also part of the context from which early Christianity emerges, and Christian theological discourse was conducted primarily in classical languages for over a thousand years. The student who chooses to major in Classics will acquire preparation that can contribute to any of the liberal arts, as well as expand their historical and cultural perspective. Students interested in pre-law, pre-medicine, education and many other sciences are encouraged to consider the Classics offerings as electives, as are business majors aspiring to management.
