BA in Classics and Philosophy Boston University



Course info


In addition to giving students a basic grounding in the key texts and methods of philosophy, this major familiarizes them with the canonical works of ancient Greek philosophy and imparts an understanding of the importance of these texts in the development of philosophical thought in antiquity and later. Through study of ancient Greek, students learn to read standard works of classical prose in the original language and are trained to discuss clearly and persuasively key issues raised by ancient Greek philosophers. This major prepares students for entry into an MA program in ancient Greek, for graduate work in philosophy, and—if combined with preparation in Latin—for graduate work leading to a PhD in classics. It also is an excellent foundation for further study in religion, theology, and other humanistic disciplines.

Learning Outcomes
