The Department of Classics & Religious Studies

The Department of Classics and Religious Studies brings together two fields of study that overlap in interesting ways. The field of Classics encompasses a wide range of courses in the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome—their languages, literature, history, and material culture. And courses in Religious Studies acquaint students with the world’s great religions—Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and Judaism—their history, sacred writings, and essential beliefs and practices.
