About the Program

The Classics minor is an interdisciplinary minor with participation from departments in the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.

Focus of Study

The field of Classics extends through all aspects of Greek and Roman culture from antiquity through the medieval period. The Classics minor at UCCS is an interdisciplinary program focusing on the study of art, culture, history, literature, philosophy, religion, theater and women’s studies in conjunction with language training in Greek and Latin. The program aims to integrate these into a larger picture of Greco-Roman culture and, from this perspective, to deepen our understanding of our own.
