Department Chair: Kris Trego

The curriculum of the Department of Classics & Ancient Mediterranean Studies provides students multidisciplinary opportunities to study the Mediterranean world of the ancient Greeks and Romans and, to a more limited extent, the ancient societies of the Near East and Egypt. Some courses also stress the classical tradition, the western inheritance of Greco-Roman ideas and art forms. The department offers varied kinds of courses through which students may approach the study of the ancient world, including courses in Greek and Latin. The Classics & Ancient Mediterranean Studies Faculty Scholarship collection contains records filtered by department from Faculty Books, Faculty Conference Papers and Presentations, Faculty Contributions to Books, Faculty Journal Articles, and Other Faculty Research and Publications. The Classics & Ancient Mediterranean Studies Student Scholarship collection contains records filtered by department from the Honors Thesis and Masters Thesis collections.

The main Classics & Ancient Mediterranean Studies site includes a department description, faculty and staff contact information, and major and minor requirements. Past versions of the department website are archived by the Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) using the Archive-It web archiving services; capture began in 2015. Finding aids for departmental records are also available online.
