New Classics courses in the core fill up fast

Thursday, Jun. 24, 2010

In our never-ending effort to spread our tentacles through the university, Classics has already had most of our lower-division courses approved in the new core curriculum. In addition to our Greek and Latin courses, all of which either partially or completely fulfill the language core requirement, the following classes are embedded in the new core:

  • CLAS 11A and 12A: Heroes and Heroism (satisfies Cultures and Ideas 1 & 2)
  • CLAS 11A and 12A: Gods and Mortals (satisfies Cultures and Ideas 1 & 2)
  • CLAS 11A and 12A: Natural Law (satisfies Cultures and Ideas 1 & 2)
  • CLAS 11A and 12A: Barbarians and Savages (satisfies Cultures and Ideas 1 & 2)
  • CLAS 60: Introduction to Ancient Studies (satisfies C&I 3)
  • CLAS 65: Classical Mythology (satisfies RTC 2)
  • CLAS 67: Ancient Greek Religion (satisfies RTC 2)
  • CLAS 68: Ancient Roman Religion (satisfies RTC 2)

This year and next we will develop upper-division courses for the new core. This Spring we will offer a Third-Writing core course, and we are in the process of designing several courses for 2011-12 that will satisfy the Civic Engagement requirement.
