Welcome to the Classics Program
Southwestern offers Majors in Classics, Latin, and Greek (and a Latin minor and Greek minor).
The Classics Program’s broad range of experiences prepares you for a variety of careers. Some of our students go on to further study in Classics, but these rigorous majors set you up for careers in medicine, law, business, and many others. You can read various testimonials by clicking here.
