The graduate program of the Department of Classical Studies at Boston University is designed to prepare students for professional careers while being flexible enough to accommodate those who wish to incorporate inter-disciplinary studies embracing other areas. The department encourages interdisciplinary and comparative literary, historical and cultural studies, including the classical tradition, and welcomes students to combine study of the classical languages and cultures with a second academic discipline. The department has particular strength in Greek drama, Augustan poetry, ancient epic, ancient rhetoric, mythology, the translation of classical literature, ancient history, and the classical tradition in Europe and America.
