Bachelor of Arts in Classical Civilization University of Cincinnati



Course info


Classical civilization is the study of the culture, history, language and literature of ancient Greece and Rome. Classical civilization majors develop language skills and enrich their lives through an interdisciplinary exploration of the Greek and Roman worlds. They study such things as mythology, philosophy, religion, politics and other areas where the ancient Greeks and Romans made decisive contributions to world civilization.


Classical civilization students possess an eye for detail, curiosity about languages -- including their own -- and love of history. Some well-known students, past and recent, are: Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud; Theodor Mommsen and Toni Morrison (both recipients of the Nobel Prize for literature); Oscar Wilde, Erich Segal ("Love Story") and J.K. Rowling ("Harry Potter"); Garry Wills (Catholic cultural critic) and Archbishop Pilarczyk of Cincinnati; David Packard (of Hewlett-Packard) and Charles Geschke (founder of Adobe); James Baker (former secretary of state).


Classical civilization students receive a strong liberal arts education that enables them to pursue a graduate degree in diverse fields of study including law, medicine and the ministry, and that allows them to move into a great variety of careers in industry, business and public service, as shown by our "baker’s dozen" list under success factors. Depending on the actual courses taken, they could also pursue careers in archaeology, historical preservation and museum work. (Those who want to pursue an academic career in Greek or Latin per se should consider our classics major, which focuses more heavily on language and literature.) Classical civilization students develop critical thinking, communication, reading and writing skills to a high level of competence and precision. Such skills are highly valued in the private and public sphere.

Graduates find careers in: Law; medicine; ministry; industry; business (advertising, public relations, publishing); public services (administration, foreign service, journalism, libraries); archaeology (consultant, researcher, teacher, tourism); historical preservation (archives, historical societies); museum work.
