Greek and Roman Studies
Department

The department offers an exploration of the ancient Mediterranean world with an emphasis on the cultures of Greece and Rome. At the heart of this exploration are the languages of the Greeks and the Romans, their literature, their history, their art and archaeology, their philosophy, their religion, their politics, their relations with the other peoples of the Mediterranean, and their reception and interpretation by later cultures. In addition to the major, the department offers a correlate sequence.
