Robin Mitchell-Boyask, Department Chair
Greek & Roman Classics Division
Students in the Department of Greek, Hebrew, and Roman Classics study the cultures and languages of three major civilizations of the ancient Mediterranean world. Classics is an interdisciplinary field of study which encompasses major disciplines of the liberal arts: languages, history, literature, and philosophy.
Classics offers a sound liberal arts background: Classics majors have held senior positions in government, law, and public service organizations, have founded and headed profit and non-profit companies and organizations, and have worked as correspondents and journalists. Recent Temple Classics majors have gone on to law school, veterinary school, graduate school, business and teaching careers.
The organization for majors and minors is Zeta Beta Chapter of Eta Sigma Phi, the National Honorary Society for Classics.
Distinction in Major requires a senior thesis and a minimum GPA of 3.5 in Greek, Latin, or Greek and Roman Classics courses.
