Department of Classics

Welcome to the Department of Classics at Florida State University!


The Department of Classics at Florida State University is the oldest in Florida and has emerged as one of the leading centers of classical studies in the United States. The faculty in Classics is distinguished in teaching and research. Several members of the faculty have received university and national teaching awards. The department boasts special strengths in many areas of classical studies, including archaeology, ancient history, and Latin and Greek literature. The Department also plays an important role in training Latin teachers for the schools.

The Department offers students the intimacy of a small liberal arts college in the midst of a large state university. There is an enthusiastic community of approximately 80 majors and 45 graduate students. There are a variety of student organizations, including the Archaeology Club and Eta Sigma Phi.

We would especially like to welcome the newest member of our faculty, Dr. Virginia Lewis.

The Department of Classics is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Sarah Craft (PhD, Brown University) as the first Post-Doctoral Fellow in Classics. Dr. Craft’s fields of expertise include the Late Antique world, travel in Antiquity, and the landscape of Early Christianity in the Roman World.
