First Year Classes
In first year, you can take courses on Greek Civilization (CLAS 1P91) in the fall term and a parallel course on Roman Civilization (CLAS 1P92) in the winter. These courses introduce you to the art, history, archaeology, philosophy, and literature of Greece and Rome. 

We also offer two courses on mythology: The Myths of the Gods (CLAS 1P95) and Myths of the Heroes (CLAS 1P97).  These courses introduce students to several key works of Classical Literature such as Homer's Iliad and Euripides' Medea.

Introductory Latin (LATI 1F00) and Introductory Greek (GREE 1F00) are offered in first year too, as well as a new course on etymology to learn the roots of the English language (CLAS 1P94).  

Archaeology and Study Tours
We make available courses in the Mediterranean region every summer (either an archaeological excavation or a study tour) and though these classes are offered as third year classes, students can start planning for them at the beginning of their degree program.
