The Department offers an undergraduate major with concentrations in archaeology, language & literature, and civilization. The ability to teach ancient Greek and Latin at all levels is required. We invite applicants with interests from across the range of ancient Greek language, literature, and culture who would expand and not significantly duplicate the department’s current strengths; applications would be particularly welcome from scholars with special expertise in drama, historiography, or ancient medicine. Strong commitment to scholarship and publication is necessary as well as evidence of excellent teaching. The standard teaching load is 3:3.
