Program Description:

The Department of Classics at the University of Chicago offers a series of unique educational programs that combine a strong and rigorous tradition in philological training with cutting-edge theories and methodologies in literary criticism; cultural poetics; philosophy; social, economic, and cultural history; classical art and archaeology; and religion. In recent years, the expansion of our faculty and programs has made available to graduate students exciting and sophisticated approaches to antiquity, as well as solid training in such fields as palaeography, linguistics, papyrology, epigraphy, and numismatics. The Department of Classics offers three PhD tracks, in Classical Languages and Literatures, the Ancient Mediterranean World, and Ancient Greek and Roman Philosophy, as well as a joint PhD in Social Thought and Classics.


Since 1913, the University of Chicago has been continuously accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.
