Department ofClassics

Majors and minors are available in several programs in the Department of Classics: ancient studies, classical studies, and classical languages and literatures (Latin or Greek). There is a major, but no minor, in Latin and Greek. Because course offerings in any one term are limited, students wishing a classics major are encouraged to plan their curriculum in consultation with a faculty advisor at the earliest possible date.

In addition to fulfilling University Core Curriculum requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree, students majoring in classics must complete the departmental requirements in the Undergraduate Bulletin.

Both Greek and Latin fulfill the foreign language Core Curriculum requirement—students with previous experience with either language should contact the Chair of Classics if there are questions about which course to enroll in.
