University of California, Santa Barbara
Classics - Classical Language and Literature 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 Language and Literature emphasis focuses on examining the Graeco-Roman world through an exploration of ancient texts in their original languages. Like Classics as a field, this emphasis is strongly interdisciplinary. Readings in Greek and/or Latin texts offer the student a sampling of poetry, drama, history, philosophy, oratory, etc.
