Chair of Classics and Modern Languages: Dr. Jamie Trnka

Classics is the study of the languages, literature, physical remains, society and culture, and history of Greco-Roman civilization.

Xavier's program focuses primarily upon literature and language. These pillars stand at the center of this discipline, and they are the basics for further study of any of the specialized aspects of classical antiquity. More importantly, they infuse the undergraduate student with the words and contexts of many of the world's greatest writers and thinkers, broadening and deepening the understanding of the uniqueness and ethical ubiquity of human experience.
