Bowdoin Classics Department

The Greek and Roman classics have always been a vital part of Bowdoin's liberal arts tradition. The Department of Classics offers a classics major with three different concentrations: one with a focus on Greek and Latin (classical languages and literature), one with a focus on Greek and Roman material culture (classical archaeology), and one with a focus on Greek and Roman culture and history (classical studies). Students pursuing these majors are encouraged to study not only the languages and literatures but also the physical monuments of Greece and Rome. This approach is reflected in the requirements for the three concentrations: courses in Greek and/or Latin and in classical archaeology, history, and culture must be fulfilled.
