Classics ranks among the most vibrant programs in humanistic studies at the University of Colorado, a department in which students at every level are challenged to integrate the world of scholarship into their daily lives.

The Graduate Program in Classics is designed to prepare students for vigorous academic careers in Classics and associated fields. The program provides rigorous training in the fundamentals of classical scholarship with a view to the demands of both teaching and research. Successful students develop both a broad understanding of classical languages and culture, and special expertise in diverse areas of classical studies. Our doctorates are capable of teaching both Greek and Latin up to the intermediate level, one of the languages at advanced levels, undergraduate courses in classical civilization, and graduate courses in one or more special areas. Our faculty is among the largest and most diverse in the nation, and its interests and expertise encompass a wide spectrum of fields and approaches.
