Program Description


Classics is the study of the cultures of ancient Greece and Rome. Both cultures have had a profound influence on life in the western world, especially in the areas of language and literature, art and architecture, politics and religion, science and philosophy. The Classics department at Wright State offers classes in most of these areas.

The Latin major allows students to focus primarily on the study of Latin language and literature. Students are required to take 7 semesters of Latin language. Additional electives cover courses in a diverse range of subjects relating to the study of the Classical world.

For students interested in teaching Latin, the Latin major prepares them to enroll after graduation in the Latin Licensure program, which the Classics Department offers in conjunction with Wright State’s College of Education and Human Services.
