Why minor in classical studies?
The study of Latin and Greek opens a window into the roots of Western civilization and the origins of modern language. As a Classical Studies student at UND, you'll study great authors like Homer and Socrates, learn some of the world's most ancient languages, and prepare to thrive in any career.
As a Classical Studies minor, you can focus on Latin, Greek, or both Latin and Greek. Each option combines language study with multidisciplinary coursework in subjects such as history, political science, religion and philosophy, giving you a broad perspective on classical culture.
Studying the classics builds skills and competencies such as critical and analytical thinking, writing and oral communication, research, problem solving and creativity — the skills that are most in demand in the workplace.
