Greek and Latin Classics
Greek religion encompassed the collection of beliefs and rituals practiced in ancient Greece in the form of both popular public religion and cult practices. But this is a poem less about travel and monsters than it is about identity - how the wily hero disguises himself even among his family. Philology is the study of language preserved in written sources; classical philology is thus concerned with understanding any texts from the classical period written in the classical languages of Latin and Greek. We can't overestimate the value of a Classics major.
