The Classics Advisory Service helps college and university teachers maintain and strengthen their programs in Classics (broadly understood to include Greek and Latin languages and literatures, history, archaeology, and all other aspects of classical civilization). Among the services we provide are assistance with external Program Reviews, and advice and support for strengthening current programs and preserving threatened programs. The SCS now also provides guidelines for establishing and improving undergraduate programs.
