The Classics program at Johns Hopkins University aims to produce broad, versatile scholars who have a holistic view of ancient cultures and of the evidence by which those cultures are comprehended.
Faculty research covers a wide range of periods and topics, approached from a rich variety of theoretical perspectives, many of which have been developed or refined at Johns Hopkins. The department is also celebrated for its rare strength in the study of classical reception, Neo-Latin, and the history of classical scholarship.
Specific interests of departmental faculty can best be appreciated by reviewing their individual profiles, as well as the faculty book feed.
The department enjoys close ties with other departments across the humanities. The university’s distinguished archeological museum is housed in the department’s midst. Students and scholars at Hopkins enjoy one of the nation’s leading research libraries, which includes a rare book division that collects energetically in Classics and intellectual history.
