The study of the Greek and Latin classics has a long history but remains vitally important in our time.
The texts we study have been used to justify but also to challenge inequities, and we are committed to critical study of both these aspects.
We also specialize in the reception of Greco-Roman antiquity, that is, the ways in which these cultures and their works have been understood and reimagined in later eras, including our own. Our programs are flexible in scheduling and content; for example, all our advanced Greek and Latin courses are offered in the evenings. Read more about the specifics by following the links below.
