Classics Major

Samford Classics works to open the ears of twenty-first century Alabama to the voices of our Greek and Roman inheritance, the legacy of Western thought and the Christian church that speaks to us of who we have been, who we are, and who we can become.

"Being a classics major at Samford allowed me to explore concepts that positively impacted my profession and forever changed my path. The professors were dynamic yet deeply caring and the subject matter changed the whole world, so clearly it can change a life. I have never once regretted being a classics major. It was the best indoor education that I could have received."
