Language. Philosophy. Math. Mythology. So much of what we know today—our shared experiences and common knowledge—is rooted in ancient Greece. Wheaton’s classics department is devoted to antiquities and the enduring influence of early civilizations. As a Greek major, you’ll examine ancient texts and explore history, literature, and philosophy. Many students combine Greek with another humanities or social sciences major. With a well-rounded educated and sharpened analytical, research, and writing skills, our graduates are ready to pursue advanced degrees in philosophy, world languages, divinity, and law—or for a wide variety of careers.
