I thought that the chief thing to be done in order to equal boys
was to be learned and courageous. So I decided to study Greek
and learn to manage a horse. ~Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Ancient Greek was the language of Aeschylus, Alexander the Great, Aristotle, Euclid, Hippocrates, and Ptolemy, to mention just a few of people who have made indelible contributions to Western Civilization. As the language of the New Testament, it brought the Christian faith to the Greek empire and beyond.
By the end of the fourth semester, students will have seen Ancient, Attic, Byzantine, and Koiné Greek. These language courses are designed for those students who wish to enrich their knowledge of English vocabulary and grammar, become acquainted with Greek culture, and more fully appreciate the impact of Ancient Greek language and culture on the modern world.
Our courses support majors and minors in Interdisciplinary Humanities (concentration in Classical Studies) and minors of Classical Studies (also an interdisciplinary program). Please visit those pages to learn more.
