Classical and Ancient Studies Program

Kansas City, MO 64110-2499

The field of classics is the original interdisciplinary field of study, including the study of language, literature, religion, philosophy, art, and archaeology. Modern Classics programs continue to focus on the ancient Mediterranean world, particularly Greek and Roman culture, but also encompass the study of non-Western cultures and post-Greco-Roman societies. The broad scope and intellectual rigor of the Classical and Ancient Studies major and minor options help students to understand the contemporary world and to prepare for a wide range of careers.

The Classical and Ancient Studies program provides several options for the study of history, literature, art, culture, and language of the Ancient Mediterranean world. Students can major in English and complete the track in Classical, Medieval, and Early Modern Literature; major in History with a concentration in Antiquity and Medieval History; major in Foreign Languages with an emphasis in Classical Language and Cultures; or pursue a minor in Classical and Ancient Studies in conjunction with any of the degrees above or with any other degree program.
