There is a proud tradition of teaching and learning the Classics at Valpo.

In addition to the more traditional Classical Language and Literature Track, Valpo offers the Classical Civilization Track. Students who major or minor in either track are able to pursue a variety of careers. Many students combine Classics with other fields (Education, Theology, Law, the Sciences), although some intend to become professional classicists themselves one day and so prepare for graduate school. All Valpo students who study Classics grow in their appreciation of the priceless literature, history and culture which are at the basis of Western Civilization.
