Many peoples around and beyond the Mediterranean basin contributed to these cultures, and the lasting impact of Ancient Greek and Roman cultures has similarly been felt by other cultures around the world. The major programs in classics and classical studies draw on the offerings of the departments of classics, history, philosophy, politics, and rhetoric.
The Classics Major at the Whitman College emphasizes the study of both classical languages, requiring at least three years of one language and two of the other, supported by additional coursework in ancient civilization and history. The Classics Major requires a senior thesis which includes working with ancient texts in their original languages.
Major-Specific Areas of Knowledge
- Graduating Classics majors will be able to use original language materials in both Latin and Greek in their development of arguments and analyses.
- Though a student may have greater familiarity with either the Greek or the Roman culture, all graduating Classics majors will be able to use materials from the other of the two cultures in developing an argument about the classical world.
Whitman College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
