Overview

The Classics - Classical Civilization program at University of Miami is conceived in broad intellectual, aesthetic, social, political, geographical, and historical terms, examining Greco-Roman civilization in itself and in relation to the many cultures that interacted with it in the Mediterranean and European world, from Iran, Egypt, Nubia, and the Etruscans, to Britain, the Franks, the Huns, the Lombards, and the Goths.

Goals

The objectives of the program and of the Bachelor of Arts in Classics have remain the following: 

  • to train students in the Ancient Greek and/or Latin languages;
  • to educate them about the literature, history, archaeology, and philosophy of the ancient Greco-Roman world;
  • to hone their skills in written English; and
  • to allow them to develop a broad knowledge of the arts of language and the logic and rhetoric of expression.

Like majors in English, History, and Philosophy, majors in Classics go on to a wide variety of graduate and professional programs: medical school, nursing school, other health professions, business school, the arts, museums, and library sciences. Majors in Classics receive superb preparation for law school, become bankers and entrepreneurs, and work for both government and non-government organizations such as charitable institutions and foundations. Our program trains students to enter these fields with strong intellectual values and well-honed skills in expository and analytical language.
