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).

The SCS now also provides guidelines for establishing and improving undergraduate programs.
