The field of Classical Studies offered by Tulane University combines history, literature, archaeology, art history, law, and linguistics, and so is fundamentally interdisciplinary in character.



The study of Greece and Rome thus provides students with an historical perspective on and better understanding of the institutions, values, and intellectual traditions of the world in which we live. Our students gain an understanding not only of various aspects of the ancient world but also of the methodologies of classical studies can work separately and together to widen and deepen our comprehension of human cultures in all periods.

The MA in Classical Studies at Tulane University serves two primary purposes: (1) to prepare students for entry into a PhD program in Classics or a related field, and (2) to prepare students for teaching Latin, Greek, and the history and culture of the ancient Mediterranean world in secondary schools.
