The Classics and American Government

Course Number: 
GAFL570
Cross Listed: 
CLST370

Before the universities established public-service programs in the twentieth century, many Americans prepared themselves for public life by studying Greek and Latin authors in school and college. In this course, using English translations, students survey an eighteenth-century classical curriculum and trace its influence in the political activity of Madison and others who guided the development of American governmental institutions.

This course satisfies an elective requirement in the Master of Public Administration and Certificate in Politics programs.
