Concentration in Classics and Classics Minor, and Concentration in Interdisciplinary Classical Civilizations

World Languages offers a Concentration and Minor in Classics and a Concentration in Interdisciplinary Classical Civilizations. See Degree Requirements for more information about the courses needed.


Classics at USF is a language-based, interdisciplinary humanities field. We provide instruction in the Greek and Latin languages, and translation courses that focus on the study of Greek and Roman civilization, literature, mythology, philosophy, and religion.

Comprised of faculty members who specialize in widely diverse aspects of the Greek and Roman world (such as Greek tragedy and philosophy, Roman epic and historiography) our department combines the intimacy of a small liberal arts college with the wide-ranging educational interests of a large state university.

Our concentration is of particular interest to students who wish to teach the languages, to those who plan graduate study in a humanistic discipline, and to those who want an undergraduate major that focuses on the ancient civilizations that are the cornerstone of the Western Tradition.

All students who wish to enroll in the Concentration in Classics or Interdisciplinary Classical Civilizations Concentration should contact the Undergraduate Advisor Andrew Bird (
