Classical Studies, Minor

Classics traditionally refers to the study of language, philosophy, arts, literatures, history, and more of ancient Greece and Rome. At UVU, Classics takes a more global and diverse approach, recognizing that many cultures around the world have had “classical periods” which have shaped their entire pre-modern histories and continue to influence the world today. At present, the Classics minor at UVU offers particular strengths in ancient Greece and China, along with Rome—including language training in Ancient Greek, Classical Chinese, and Latin (with the hope and possibility for more). The program aims to preserve and promote the strengths of traditional Classics while also critically incorporating global and non-Western classical traditions for a more comparative and multicultural approach to ancient civilization, value, the canon, and the very idea of classics.
