The SCS provides a wide range of services to its members through its five major divisions.
The Education Division coordinates activities concerned with the teaching of classical studies. The Program Division holds an Annual Meeting which affords opportunities for the presentation of papers by members, as well as informal communication with others in the field. Through its Publications and Research Division, the SCS publishes TAPA and coordinates projects related to current research in classical studies. The Professional Matters Division monitors adherence to the SCS's Statement on Professional Ethics. The Outreach Division prepares materials of interest to an audience beyond the SCS's core membership in order to promote a wider public understanding and appreciation of Classics. Its best known project, the well-received publication Amphora, presents high-quality scholarship in a form accessible to a very broad audience. The SCS also operates a Placement Service. New members are always welcome!
