The Classics Department offers students the opportunity to read works of classical literature in the original languages and in English translation and to come to know and appreciate the classical civilizations at the roots of modern civilization. The Classics Program is a cooperative intercollegiate program; Classics courses taught at all of The Claremont Colleges count as Pomona courses. Greek, Latin and Classical Hebrew may be taken to fulfill the Pomona College foreign language requirement.
The department offers a major and a minor. Courses taken P/NC may not be counted toward either the major or the minor. Exceptions to this rule must be approved by the faculty of the department.
