Classical Studies Scholarships

Study Latin, Greek or Ancient Texts

Classical Studies are all about ancient Mediterranean cultures and civilizations, with a main focuses on the Greeks and Romans. These ancient societies have influenced much of our modern culture. Architecture, art, education, politics, economics, business and even sports all had influences from these civilizations. Even in the midst of our hyper-technical world, almost every tool or activity can be traced back to their ancient roots.

Students pursuing Classical Studies are often interested in teaching the Classics or completing graduate and post-graduate work for a career in academia. Still others use this major to lay groundwork for future studies in liberal arts. Classical Studies majors typically have the option to specialize in ancient civilizations, or the Greek or Latin languages.
