Classics encompasses literature as well as archaeology, art, architecture, history, economics, gender studies, philosophy, theater studies and other disciplines. You acquire a deep understanding of the Greek and Roman civilizations, whose role in shaping the modern world is immeasurable. If you're interested in the medieval period, we also offer a program in that field.
International opportunities and study abroad
You are encouraged to spend a semester or summer abroad, usually during or following your junior year. If you like, you can see firsthand the cultural monuments of ancient Greece and Rome – or you might choose to study elsewhere.
The Connecticut College Department of Classics immerses students in the world of ancient Greece and Rome through study of the languages, histories, cultures, and material remains of the ancient Mediterranean. The Arabic Studies program, housed within Classics, offers a special focus on Arabic language, literature, and culture.
An interdisciplinary program, Classics offers majors three tracks: Classical Languages, Classical Studies, and Classical and Medieval Studies. Students have the flexibility to focus largely on a single area or interweave the concentrations. They are mentored by faculty members who are engaged in original research and publishing actively in their field.
