Classics – the study of the languages, literatures, and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome – embraces an incredibly diverse range of human voices, passions, and achievements. The beauty and versatility of Latin and Greek are still fresh and powerful today. Study of the art, literature, and history of Greece and Rome brings you into contact with values that are in many ways strange and foreign to our own, but that, in other respects, have played a fundamental role in defining Western legal and political institutions, art and architecture, and concepts of human nature. Classicists are well equipped to understand – and critique – the Western tradition.
