About

The Classics degree program offered by Baylor University encourages educational diversity and offers a wide range of electives such as art, history, philosophy and religion. 

The Classics Department offers several special programs for students. As part of the Green Scholars Initiative, the department offers undergraduate researchers the rare opportunity to work first hand with ancient Greek and Latin papyri and medieval manuscripts. The department also offers study abroad opportunities specific to the Classic majors.

Most graduates of the Classics major use their degree to pursue advanced education through graduate school, law school or seminary. The undergraduate degree plan also equips students with the foundation to teach similar material at a K-12 level.

The Department of Classics at Baylor offers Ancient Greek and Latin at all levels, from the first-year sequence to upper-level courses in a variety of Greek and Latin authors and topics. In addition, we offer a number of more general courses using sources in translation. See the current Undergraduate Catalog for a complete list of potential offerings.
