Classical Studies

The study of ancient Greece and Rome has proven itself through the centuries as a (perhaps “the”) core area for study of the liberal arts, exploring the basic foundations for subsequent western religious practice, visual art, literature, government, natural science, mathematics, theater and philosophy. The Classical Studies minor at Albright combines traditional emphasis on the languages of the classical world (Latin and ancient Greek) with courses that focus on the general study and appreciation of the art, religion, culture, and history of ancient Greece and Rome.  The minor requires the completion of five courses.
