The Department of Classics

The Department of Classics at the University of Chicago offers a series of unique educational programs that combine a strong and rigorous tradition in philological training with cutting-edge theories and methodologies in literary criticism, cultural poetics, philosophy, social, economic and cultural history, classical art and archaeology, and religion. In recent years, the expansion of our faculty and programs has made available to both undergraduate and graduate students exciting and sophisticated approaches to antiquity as well as solid training in fields such as palaeography, linguistics, papyrology, epigraphy and numismatics.
