Classics @ FSU

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. In keeping with being the oldest classical studies department in Florida, the department maintains the traditional emphases on the Latin and Greek languages and, for students interested in archaeology and material culture, hands-on experience in the field. At the same time, faculty are at the forefront of emerging theoretical and interpretive methodologies, and embrace modern digital resources and technologies.

The department encompasses three principal disciplines: Classical Archaeology, Ancient History, and Classical Languages and Literature.
