About this course

Undergraduate Studies in The Classics
We live in a rapidly changing, globally networked world. The problems we face in the twenty-first century—disparities of wealth and opportunity, environmental degradation, political deadlock—are as urgent as any in human history. How will studying classical antiquity help you live in a world like this? How will it help you change it for the better?

The study of ancient Greece and Rome at Princeton is about engaging with the past to reimagine the world today. It’s about learning to grapple with the foundational texts and artifacts of the Western world on their own terms. It’s about coming to see how classical antiquity has shaped and continues to shape the present, from the inspiration that America’s Founding Fathers took from the Roman Republic, to the enduring value of authors like Homer and Virgil, to the prominent position of the Hippocratic Oath in contemporary medicine, to the lively popularity of figures from Greek and Roman mythology.
Students of Classics build a wide range of intellectual and practical skills: how to make sense of and learn from foreign languages and distant cultures; how to appreciate and engage with works and ideas that have inspired people for millennia; how to analyze an argument, to interrogate a long-standing assumption, to see the ancient roots of contemporary concepts; how to develop, communicate, and defend your own ideas. Studying Classics, you have the opportunity to join in a centuries-long conversation about value, justice, and the human condition – what Socrates famously called the examined life.

Eligibility Criteria


Educational Testing Service(link is external) administers the internet-based TOEFL. The Graduate School prefers scores from the iBT TOEFL. Due to the nature of the graduate admission process, the Graduate School has not set a recommended minimum score for the iBT TOEFL. Applicants who take the test in a country which does not offer the iBT TOEFL should take the PBT TOEFL.

Admitted students who score below a 28 on the speaking subsection of the TOEFL iBT will be required to take an English placement test at Princeton. Students who do not pass the test will be required to enroll in English Language Program classes.


IELTS is a testing arm of Cambridge University, United Kingdom ESOL examinations and the British Council. Students who wish to demonstrate English proficiency through the IELTS test should visit their website(link is external), for information about the administration of this test and how to have test results reported to Princeton in a timely fashion.
