University of California, Santa Barbara
Classics - Classical Archaeology Emphasis B.A.

Classics is the study of Greek and Roman culture as revealed through its literary, historical, philosophical, and scientific writings from Homeric to Byzantine times. Classics is a broad and interdisciplinary field that includes the study of language, literature, religion, mythology, gender, society, medicine, and law. Classicists study the achievements of the Greeks and Romans: their democratic ideals, their religious beliefs and their humanistic philosophy. Greater awareness of Greek and Roman culture gives classicists a better understanding of contemporary cultures. The Classical Archaeology emphasis brings together classical art history, classical archaeology, anthropology, and ancient history into a coherent program of study. Archaeology emphasizes the material remains of Greek and Roman culture. Studying remains of pottery, houses and cities leads to a detailed understanding of ancient society and customs. Course work includes art history and history as well as archaeology and field techniques.
