Welcome to the Department of Classics

The Department of Classics at Emory boasts an energetic, internationally respected team of scholars devoted to undergraduate teaching, and to fostering close teacher/student relationships with a particular focus on personalized small-class experiences.

Emory Classics Gateway Program

In the summer of 2023, Emory University’s Department of Classics hosted the second cohort of the Emory Classics Gateway Program. The program provided funding for three students with an interest in Classics to attend Emory’s Pre-College Summer Program for a two-week residential experience as rising juniors or seniors and take a course on Roman Pompeii.

Pictured from left to right are this year’s winners, Brianna McCray (Midtown High School), Maria Harle (Atlanta Classical Academy), Kristalyn Lee (Midtown High School) .
