Kudos to Dr. Virginia Lewis and Dr. Jim Sickinger, who closed out a year of fine service as, respectively, Director of Graduate and Director of Undergraduate Studies with aplomb, leading us through the still challenging waters of cyberspace in yesterday's virtual Department of Classics commencement! And kudos to our graduates with degrees of BA, MA, and Ph.D.!
Department of Classics
The Classics Department at Florida State University is a leading center of Classical Studies, with nationally and internationally distinguished faculty for both teaching and research. It provides undergraduate students the intimacy of a small liberal arts college, while providing graduate students the resources and experience of a large Research I university. With approximately 80 majors and 30-40 graduate students, the department is among the largest Classical Studies programs in the public university system, and it is designed to prepare its students for careers in the 21st century, with FSU Classics alumni currently holding positions in diverse fields including university academia, museums, professional archaeology, secondary education, and law.
