Classical Studies

Course Overview

The Classical Studies minor offers TCU students the opportunity to study the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome through a range of perspectives and approaches. Courses involve such areas as ancient languages, history, art, classical rhetoric and religion, as well as the classical influence on modern literature and culture, providing insights to both past mentalities as well as the social and cultural forces that shaped ancient life and continue to have an impact on us today. In addition to a range of courses, students have the opportunity to engage in independent study with sponsoring professors, and then complement their work at TCU with study abroad programs.

Course Examples by Year

The minor in classical studies is designed to complement majors in other areas of the liberal arts. Requirements ensure exposure to a variety of fields, yet allow concentration (up to 12 hours) in one field.
