Classics is an interdisciplinary field that introduces students to the diverse, dynamic, and complex worlds of the ancient Mediterranean. 

While Carthage no longer offers a major or minor in classics, we offer a breadth of history classes through our History Department. Students may also major or minor in History.

Carthage began phasing out the classics majors and minors in August 2020. All current students who entered Carthage before the 2020-21 academic year who have already declared majors in these areas will continue their studies at Carthage and progress toward their degrees. Current students with declared majors or minors in Classical Studies, Classical Foundations, Classical Archeology, or Latin should visit their Degree Audit in the My.Carthage portal for more information on their programs of study.

Carthage will continue to offer multiple Classics courses in the 2020-21 academic year. These courses are designed to give students a broad, interdisciplinary perspective, and encourage recognition of cultural shifts and changes that have shaped the contemporary world.
