About

We offer a bachelor degree in Classical Humanities at University of Wisconsin Madison. The classical humanities major, offered by the University of Wisconsin Madison, allows students to combine their love of ancient language with the exploration of the literature, civilization, and culture of Greece, Rome, and the Ancient Near East.

Students study Greek, Latin, or Biblical Hebrew in two or four semester combinations, and they choose from a wide selection of complementary courses, including topics in art, architecture, archaeology, history, literature, philosophy, and politics.
