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.
Record Series 306 contains the Classics Department, Department meeting minutes from 1968 to 1973 and 1977 to 1984.
