Welcome to the Department of Classical Studies
The Department of Classical Studies is dedicated to the study of Greek, Roman, and other ancient cultures, and to clarifying and assessing their impact on contemporary life. The role of the contemporary individual in relation to society can be examined through the history, archaeology, art, architecture, science, philosophy, religion, mythology, and especially through the literatures of Greece and Rome.
Members of the Department are actively engaged in research. Our faculty have authored books with the University Press of New England, The University of Dayton, Houghton Mifflin Co, Cengage Publishing, Greenwood Press, Time-Life Books, Century Foundation, Center for International Programs, Rowman & Littlefield, University of California Press, and Hackett.
