From Homer’s Odyssey to the philosophy of Plato, Sophocles’ tragedies to Herodotus, the father of history, ancient Greek culture helped lay the groundwork for modern western civilization.

The Greek curriculum focuses on the language of Ancient Greece and establishes a foundation for further studies in religion, philosophy, biology, comparative literature, politics and many other fields. Fulfill your University of San Francisco language requirement in two semesters, rather than three, and apply a portion of your Greek credit towards completing a minor in Classical Studies.
