Classical Studies Minor

Robert G. Sullivan, Associate Professor and Coordinator

Ithaca College offers students an opportunity to study the classical tradition from an interdisciplinary perspective. The classical studies minor focuses on the languages, literatures, and civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, as well as the later classical tradition. Since many of the ideas and principles that emerged in the classical world are basic to Western culture, courses in classics apply to the study of almost all the liberal arts and sciences. Classical studies is of particular interest to students of law, literature, rhetoric and composition, communication, modern languages, history, politics, religion, music, art history, drama, and philosophy. For more information, contact the program coordinator.

The minor has three components: 1) classical languages, 2) core courses in classical history and culture, and 3) electives.
