Requirements for the major in Classical Languages

10 credits as follows:

  • Six credits in GRK and/or LAT courses at the 200-level or above, including at least 2 courses at the 300-level
  • One credit in theory or method, either CLAS 299 or, with the approval of the Chair, a course in another department such as HIST 285, ENG 200, or ANSO 300
  • Two other credits in CLAS courses at any level
  • One other credit in a CLAS course at any level or a GRK/LAT course numbered 103 or above
  • Research paper: CLAS 390 (0 credit)

Because GRK/LAT 101 and 102 do not count toward the major, this major may require 12 credits depending on prior preparation.

Requirements for the major in Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies

10 credits as follows:

  • One credit in a GRK or LAT course numbered 103 or above
  • Three credits in CLAS courses at any level
  • Four additional credits in GRK/LAT courses numbered 103 or above and/or CLAS courses numbered 200 or above
  • One credit in theory or method, either CLAS 299 or, with the approval of the Chair, a course in another department such as HIST 285, ENG 200, or ANSO 300
  • One credit in a CLAS course at the 300-level
  • Research paper: CLAS 390 (0 credit)

Because GRK/LAT 101 and 102 do not count toward the major, this major may require 12 credits depending on prior preparation.

Students in both majors must complete a substantial research paper, using both primary and secondary sources, in a course in Latin, Greek, or Classics. An Honors project in Latin, Greek, or Classics may be used to fulfill this requirement.

With permission of the Chair, courses in related studies outside the department, such as ART 105, may be substituted for requirements designated CLAS for both majors.

Requirements for the minor in Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies

5 credits as follows:

  • Two credits in CLAS courses at any level and/or GRK/LAT courses numbered 103 or above
  • Three credits in CLAS/GRK/LAT courses, 200-level or above

Students may combine a Classical Languages major with a Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies minor under the restriction that no more than two courses may count for both.
