    Historical Note

    The current Classics Department at UCLA originates from a small department called "Classical Languages," formed in 1919 at the inception of UCLA and consisting of the professor and six classes. In 1922, a second professor joined the department and classes in Ancient Greek were added to the curriculum. By 1965, the faculty numbered 12 members responsible for courses in Latin and Greek and another six members responsible for Indo-European studies (Hungarian, Finnish, Celtic, Irish, and the ancient languages of Sanskrit and Hittite), and the department has instituted programs leading to the master and doctoral degrees.
    In 1986 the Classics Department sponsored the Classics and Computing Conference, held July 19-20, 1986. Papers presented at the conference were subsequently published in "Favonius," volume 1, a scholarly journal published by the graduate students of the Classics Department.
