Classics Department


Our faculty members bring varied backgrounds and interests to their teaching, and they have been recognized with local and national teaching awards. They have written, edited and translated a range of articles, books, texts and tomes. They have received fellowships from such national institutions as the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Center for Hellenic Studies, and the Loeb Classical Library Foundation, and from such international institutions as Wolfson College (Oxford University), the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and the Mommsen-Gesellschaft (Germany). They will guide you as you learn to read carefully and critically, truly coming to understand how language works, and develop your ability to communicate with others.
