Welcome to the Undergraduate Program in the NYU Department of Classics! Here you will find an overview of the department’s offerings, along with basic information about becoming and being a member of our community.
First and foremost, you should realize that one of the great benefits of majoring in Classics at NYU is the special attention students receive in a small department staffed by outstanding scholars and teachers, and populated by a welcoming and first-rate cadre of graduate students. We actively cultivate a friendly and collegial atmosphere, in which undergraduate students, professors, and graduate students interact on a daily basis. The department, with its seminar room, lounge, and library is often a home-away-from-home for our students. Please note also that undergraduates are always encouraged to attend lectures by visiting scholars and in-house presentations of current research by faculty and graduate students. In short, we always hope that our students appear not merely in the classes they take with our teachers, but that they become thoroughly engaged members of our community on the fifth floor of the Silver Center.
