About

Students who study in the Greek and Roman Studies program of Vassar College explore aspects of the ancient Mediterranean world with an emphasis on the cultures of Greece from the fifteenth to the fourth century BCE and Rome from the seventh century BCE to the fourth century CE.

Overview

Key Features

At the heart of this exploration are the languages of the Greeks and the Romans, their literature, their history, their art, their philosophy, their religion, their politics, and their relations with the other peoples of the Mediterranean.

The faculty of the Greek and Roman Studies program of Vassar College includes scholars trained in philology and literary study, history and epigraphy, and archaeology. Students in our classes thus benefit from studying different facets of the ancient world with teachers who, though they share a broad area of inquiry, are interested in different sets of questions.

Common to all of our classes is an interest in using insights about the ancient world to enrich our understanding of the world that we inhabit. In the end what classicists develop is an intense self-consciousness about the nature of their own assumptions, assumptions which the study of antiquity allows us to question and which we must question in order to be able to focus our attention on the strange "otherness" of different cultures.

General requirements

Admission to Vassar is highly selective. Although we weigh a number of factors in the admission decision, the most important is academic ability, as demonstrated by performance in high school. We also consider personal strengths, motivation, and potential as evidenced in essays, recommendations, and out-of-class involvements. Standardized test scores are also reviewed, as an indicator of academic aptitude.While we do not prescribe a specific secondary school program, we expect applicants to have elected the most demanding courses available. Therefore, we recommend students elect four years of English, Mathematics, Laboratory Science, History or Social Science, and Foreign Language.
