See history for more about how this subject is taught at Evergreen.

In classics, you study ancient Greek and Roman civilizations and the foundational works of European traditions of art, literature, science, and philosophy. You gain an understanding of past cultures and engage with ancient Greeks and Romans in a dialogue on perennial questions. The combination of classics and classical archaeology with other areas of study gives you the opportunity to explore the vitality of ancient works and their importance in modern times. Classical studies are commonly taught in concert with philosophy, political science, history, theatre, anthropology, visual arts, and natural sciences.
