Loyola University Maryland

Department of Classics

Honors Program

Students can easily combine a major or minor in classics or classical civilization with participation in the Honors program—indeed, many of our current and former majors are also honors program veterans. Three of our faculty members, Professor Walsh, Professor McCreight, and Professor Taylor frequently teach the honors program's initial course for first-year students, "The Ancient World." Refer to the honors program curriculum for specifics: you will see that classics and honors complement one another quite well.
