About

Classics at the Saint Anselm College is the perfect undergraduate major. Studying the Greek and Roman classics puts one in touch with some of the greatest productions of humankind that transcend the civilizations that produced them. If your interest is literary, historical, art historical, philosophic, legal or linguistic there is something in them for you. 

Overview

John Sandys, years ago, defined Classics as "the accurate study of the language, literature, and art of Greece and Rome, and of all that they teach us as to the nature and history of man". This definition is a good one and it is reflected in the various avenues of study in the Department of Classics at Saint Anselm College: philology (the study of the languages), ancient history, archaeology, ancient philosophy and the classical tradition. 

Because of the nature of the evidence that survives from the classical world, no aspect of the field can be attempted without a deep awareness of the other branches. Ours is a 2500-year-old discipline; at its heart has always been the study and teaching of the languages and literatures. Indeed as Max Müller eloquently put it the generation before Sandys, "The classical scholar uses Greek or Latin…as a key to the understanding of the literary monuments which bygone ages have bequeathed to us, as a spell to raise from the tomb of time the thoughts of great men in different ages and different countries, and as a means ultimately to trace the social, moral, intellectual, and religious progress of the human race…"

Programme Structure

  • Our graduates often pursue advanced degrees in Classics, Ancient History or Archaeology, some go on to related fields in the liberal arts, or attend professional schools in law or medicine. 
  • Others have gone on directly to teach Latin in secondary schools, as well as to careers in government, modeling, banking, social work, programming and software development, to name a few. 
  • The department also encourages students with major concentrations in English, History, Philosophy, and Theology to supplement their studies with a secondary major in Classics.
