Why Classical Studies at Wellesley?
At Wellesley, our Classical Studies program is such a wide ranging interdisciplinary field that it can stand alone as a dynamic and challenging major or can complement almost any other major. Combined with our strong liberal arts education, our students have continued on to successful paths and careers in areas such as languages and literature, archeology, inscriptions, history, art history, politics, law, science, philosophy, religion and mythology.
Thanks to generous support from two of our esteemed alumnae, Classical Studies is able to provide grants and scholarships to help students participate in research, travel and study. Students have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester or an entire year, exploring the society, architecture, and language of Ancient Greece and Rome.
