About Us

Emory Classics boasts an energetic, internationally respected team of scholars devoted to undergraduate teaching, and to fostering close teacher/student relationships and personalized small-class experience. Since we have no graduate program, all our classes are taught by regular faculty, even at the elementary level. We offer students an opportunity to study the languages, literature, culture, and influence of classical antiquity. Examples of our course offerings include classical mythology, Roman law, Greek and Roman religion, women in antiquity, and Greek and Roman literature in translation. Most of these courses have no prerequisites, and all fulfill general education requirements (GERs) of Emory College of Arts and Sciences. Prospective students or Emory students considering a major or minor in the Department of Classics are encouraged to explore our website, especially the "Undergraduates" section pages.
