The University of Cincinnati Classics Department is one of the most active and largest centers for the study of the Greek and Roman Antiquity in the United States. Fifteen full-time faculty members, four research associates, and two Rawson Visiting Scholars specialize in Classical philology, ancient history, and archaeology, including Greek prehistory

About thirty-five graduate students are in residence at any given time, while others spend a year or more abroad to study or conduct research. In the heart of the Department is the recently renovated Burnam Classical Library, the world's most comprehensive library for advanced research in Classics (with some 275,000 volumes). The department's Tytus Fellowships bring an additional nine to twelve researchers to the Department each year, in addition to many shorter-term visitors. About thirty undergraduate majors profit from the vibrant scholarly community, while an Outreach Program takes faculty and graduate students to more than 100 area schools each year. The department's lecture series, including those sponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America, attract audiences from the larger academic and lay community in the Cincinnati area. The Department edits an international scholarly journal, the Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists, as well as Nestor, a bibliographic resource for Aegean Prehistory, and sponsors continuing series of publications for Pylos, Keos, and Troy. Faculty organize or participate in archaeological fieldwork in Greece at Pylos, Knossos, and Isthmia, and the Athenian Agora, in Italy at Pompeii and Tharros in Sardinia, in Turkey at Gordion, and in Israel at Caesarea Maritima
