About

Classics offered by the San Diego State University embraces all of ancient Greek and Roman civilization but especially Greek and Latin literature.

Overview

This includes not only poets like Homer and Vergil but also historians, philosophers, theologians, and statesmen. Their works and those of classical artists and architects inspired the Mediterranean world for a thousand years and are the basis of Western civilization.

Classical studies are built upon learning a classical language—Greek or Latin or preferably both. In addition to reading classical literature in the original, Classics majors explore a menu of intellectual and artistic studies through works in English translation.

Classics offered by the San Diego State University provides the foundation for a successful intellectual, cultural, and professional life. Some graduates enter careers in the arts or publishing or travel or education. Others use their liberal arts experience to work into management or administration. Still others find Classics incomparable preparation for law or, with some course work in sciences, medicine.

Why Major in Classics?

Classics remains at the traditional center of academia and involves a student in ancient language studies (Latin and Greek), literature and poetics, history, philosophy, political science, anthropology, archaeology, comparative linguistics and culture (to name just a few of the disciplines it has spawned).

The major in Classics with the Language Emphasis affords students the opportunity to study the classical languages (Greek and Latin) to an advanced level, while still exploring ancient Mediterranean culture in lecture courses. The major in Classics with the Humanities Emphasis allows students to explore various facets of the Mediterranean and Near Eastern civilization through focus upon the cultural products of the pre-Modern Mediterranean world.

What Can You Do With a Classics Major?

Our majors enter a variety of fields that require advanced skills in critical thinking, analysis, language, and writing. Alumni are working in the fields of healthcare, education, business, law, nonprofit organizations, the Peace Corps, tourism, and other areas of endeavor.
