The Departments of Classics and Religious Studies at Wheaton College offer an inter-disciplinary program that allows students to pursue the languages and religious cultures of the ancient Mediterranean.
We encourage our students to develop skill and sophistication in the close and careful reading of texts central to the traditions of Judaims and Christianity. We stress the interpretation of these texts in their original languages (Hebrew, Greek and Latin), and in the light of their own historical contexts.
Students may choose to concentrate on one of three areas: Traditional religions of Greece and Rome; Hebrew Bible; and New testament.
