The Department of Classics at UCSB includes 11 full-time faculty members whose interests range across the Greek and Roman worlds. We teach a wide variety of undergraduate and/or graduate courses in Greek and Roman culture, society, history and archaeology, as well as a broad curriculum of Greek and Latin language and literature.

We offer three distinct "emphases" in our undergraduate major that suit a variety of students' needs: one focuses on Greek and Latin literature, another is less language-based and offers a broader exploration of Greek and Roman culture, and a third is designed specially for those interested in archaeology


Undergraduate Spotlight: Meet Chelsea Brandwein, a UCSB Classics major from Santa Monica, CA. In this video, Chelsea shares her thoughts about the major and about one of her favorite courses, "Classics 170: Pompeii," taught by Prof. Brice Erickson.
