The Fordham Museum of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Art located on our Rose Hill campus.
Salvete! The Department of Classical Languages and Civilization teaches courses in the Greek and Latin languages and cultures on both the Rose Hill and Lincoln Center campuses. These ancient languages and civilizations are fundamental to the development of Western Civilization and have had a long and important afterlife in it. The study of the Greek and Roman classics was central in traditional Jesuit education, and Fordham University is the last American Jesuit university to offer the PhD in this field.
One studies the classics and the classical world not only for themselves, but also to understand better western history, literature, art and architecture, philosophy, and Christian theology. Although we are a small department, we support the much larger presence of (ancient) philosophy, early Christian studies, and Medieval Studies on the campus.
