We stand with our colleagues and our students to say that Black lives matter. We are committed to a future for Classics where white supremacy, racism, exclusion, and the biases of privilege not only have no place, but are actively confronted, examined, and expunged.
Department of Classics
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.
