Greek and Roman Studies at Carleton offers a community outside the classroom.

Join a Small Group of Students and Professors

Greek and Roman Studies students at Carleton enjoy small class sizes, and get to know their professors and fellow students very well. The GRS program has its own dedicated seminar room at Carleton, and a comfortable lounge, shared with the Religion program in the College of the Humanities.

Participate in GRS Student Society Activities and Contribute to the Corvus Journal

The Greek and Roman Studies Student Society holds regular social events, movie nights and pub nights. The small, tight-knit community also works closely with faculty on recruitment events and open-house days, helping to build a close relationship with their professors. They also publish an undergraduate journal of their work. See our Corvus Journal page.

Forge friendships while Studying Abroad

Students are able to go on trips through the program, and enjoy seeing Greek and Roman sites firsthand while in the company of other Classics students. See our Study Abroad page.

Go on an Archaeological Excavation

As part of your student life, you can work for a summer on an archaeological excavation, in the Mediterranean or elsewhere. See our Archaeological Excavations page.
