College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Classics

Major | Minor | Three Year

| Bachelor of Arts

Students enjoy an intensive, hands-on curriculum, encouraging them to supplement their departmental studies with work in other disciplines. Real engagement with the ancient world through study abroad in the very environments that inspired the ancient Greeks and Romans creates an individualized education like no other. Through studying the Greeks and Romans, students will come to learn the emphasis both cultures placed on knowledge, wisdom, and experience, and understand that they are not just the keys to our program, but the keys to life as well.

Sample courses in this program include:

  • TI200-CLA, Roman Perspectives
  • PCA 262-CLA, Greek Art and Myth
  • LT 301, Advanced Latin
  • CLA303, Drama on the Ancient Stage
  • CLA323, Women in Antiquity
  • CLA 300, Study Tour of Greece (Archaeological Field School)

Please visit the Butler University Bulletin for more course information.
