Beyond the Classroom

Our academic programs are the heart of what we are about. But some of our classes take place outside the classroom, “on location” in Italy, Greece, and France. The Baltimore/Washington area provides excellent opportunities for internships and other forms of enrichment for our students. The department is host to a chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, the national Classics honor society, which students join by invitation; the Classics Club, an officially recognized student organization, is open to any student from any major.  Our alumni go on to a wide variety of careers in and outside the field of Classics; some of them tell the stories of their journeys so far in their own words on the “Careers” page.
