Welcome to USC Dornsife Classics

The Department of Classics invites students to share in the study of the language, literature, and culture of ancient Greece and Rome and the civilizations they helped to shape. We offer an undergraduate major and minor, including honors option, and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. Because we are a small and collegial department, students have the opportunity to work closely with distinguished faculty and to develop individualized or collaborative research programs.

NEW Undergraduate Degree Requirements

The new major requirements ask each student to choose a TRACK of courses whose learning objectives provide distinctly different sets of skills and types of knowledge about ancient Greece and Rome.
