Support UCSB Classics

The generosity of our alumni, parents, and friends plays a critical role in supporting our mission.  It helps us showcase the importance and vitality of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds and the continuing impact of ancient literature, politics, philosophy, architecture, and religion in the modern world today. Every gift counts and is greatly appreciated.

Giving Opportunities

There are many ways to support the Department of Classics.  Listed below are our highest priorities:

The department is committed to increasing its diversity (socio-economic, cultural, ethnic) and welcomes targeted donations to support this end.
