Classics at the University of Montana
The University of Montana, chartered in 1895, has promoted the study of Classics ever since. The original university faculty numbered five, one of whom was Father Aber, a classicist fondly remembered by many alumni for the traditionally festive Aber Day, which he instituted. Today, the Classics Section of the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Literatures maintains four full time faculty members.
In 1995, the Classics faculty introduced a Bachelor's degree option in Classical Civilization. This program, which focuses on ancient readings in modern English translation, is modeled on the traditional education received by the majority of students in Europe and America until the early years of this century, so modified as to address the preparation and needs of today's college students.
