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.
