The Department of Classics is deeply committed to undergraduate education, and offers courses and majors that present a wide variety of perspectives on and approaches to the ancient world. While many of the courses focus on the languages and literatures of Greece and Rome, others are concerned primarily with the material culture of the ancient world, its art, architecture and archaeology. The department participates in the interdisciplinary major in Archaeology and the Duke-UNC Consortium for Classical and Mediterranean Archaeology, and offers many courses that introduce students to classical civilization and literature in English translation.
