The study of the ancient Greeks and Romans is also great fun! We enjoy their works of art, we marvel at their buildings, we laugh at their jokes and are moved by their drama. On this website, we hope to provide a glimpse of the many aspects of the civilizations of the ancient Mediterranean that we study here at Union. We’ve included information on the requirements for the classics major and the classics minor for students in our department. Students are encouraged to study abroad by spending Fall Term in Athens, and there is an active classics club that organizes trips to see plays on classical themes and promotes lectures on campus about the ancient world. You can also learn more about the faculty and our interests.
