The Department of Classics & Religious Studies
The major in Classics and Religious Studies brings together two fields of study that overlap in interesting ways. In this major, you will choose either an emphasis in Classics or an emphasis in Religious Studies, and most of your courses will be in your chosen emphasis.
The field of Classics encompasses a wide range of courses in the civilization of ancient Greece and Rome—their languages, literature, and history. And your courses in Religious Studies will acquaint you with the world’s great religions, their history, sacred writings, and essential beliefs and practices. You can work with faculty who specialize in Buddhist Studies, Islamic Studies, Christianity, and Judaism.
