Program Spotlight: Ancient Greek and Roman Studies

Are you interested in art, architecture, philosophy, medicine or math? Well, the people of ancient Greece and Rome played major roles in founding all of these ideas that still maintain relevance today. The Ancient Greek and Roman Studies programs are a study of the classics and talks about all things ancient.

This major/minor is interdisciplinary and pairs well with other humanities majors like history, English and philosophy since many courses are cross listed. It offers a wide variety of courses about mythology, religion, philosophy, ancient sports, and women in the ancient world. This major requires courses in either ancient Greek or Latin, which can help a future doctor learn more about the origin of ailments or the future lawyer who wants to learn more about the creation of legal terms.

To learn more about this major or minor and its specific requirement check out the Ancient Greek and Roman Studies webpage. You can also reach out to our UST Peer Liaison Emily Haldas, who provided this post!

Minor Spotlight: Religious Studies

Religion is an important source of both personal meaning and inspiration and of social cohesion and group conflict in human societies. Students interested in exploring questions concerning spirituality, belief systems, and the functions of religious institutions are encouraged to take PHIL204: World Religions. The Religious Studies minor requires just this class and an additional 12 credits from an approved list of interdisciplinary coursework offered by a variety of departments including English, History, Anthropology, and Sociology.
