Study Abroad Programs

Imagine reciting a speech of Cicero in the Roman senate house, enjoying fresh seafood while gazing across the Straits of Actium, running a footrace at Olympia, or strolling through the dusty streets of Pompeii. As a Classics major, you can easily meet program requirements while gaining a unique perspective about life in ancient Greece and Rome. Through study abroad you’ll also set yourself apart from other job-seekers and graduate-school applicants in an increasingly competitive market.

  • Numeracy skills

  • Deep understanding of language
  • Strong writing skills
  • Extensive self-directed research skills
  • Articulate key elements from complex information
