The number of faculty and generally small class size ensure that students in Classics work closely with individual professors in their areas of expertise. Classics majors study the culture of ancient Greece and Rome through programs in the ancient languages, literature, archaeology, history, history of art, linguistics and philosophy. Most Classics majors find their studies excellent preparation for professional training and careers in fields such as law, medicine, diplomacy, management and government; some go on to further study in classics or related subjects, followed by careers in teaching and scholarship.
