Classics

Classics presents an integrated study of the worlds of ancient Greece and Rome through literature, history and monuments. The study of ancient languages and archaeology allows you to engage with the ancient world first-hand.

Classics majors travel the globe. We offer summer archaeological field projects in the Mediterranean, and a study tour in Mediterranean lands, focusing on arts and culture. Brock is a contributing member to several research and teaching institutions located in the Mediterranean.

You may choose to specialize in one of the following areas:

Ancient Art and Archaeology examines the culture of the ancient Mediterranean from the perspectives of anthropological archaeology and art history.

Classical Languages emphasizes proficiency in the Greek and Latin languages and knowledge of Greek and Roman literature.

Classical Studies combines the study of Greek and Roman history, religion and literature-in-translation.
