Classics Major


Students interested in Classics major in one of three programs at Xavier: Classics, Classical Humanities, or the Classics and Philosophy Honors Bachelor of Arts Program (CPHAB).

Because of the program's reputation for rigor, its status as the first honors program at Xavier, and the outcomes it produces, the majority of our students are CPHABs.

But we also serve a number of Classics and Classical Humanities majors and minors.

A major or minor in Classical Humanities in particular is popular because students take the bulk of University Core courses (e.g. Historical Perspectives, Creative Perspectives) in Classics courses while pursuing another major.

Please enjoy reading about some of our amazing students.
