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, ART 323, 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)

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, ART 323, or ANSO 300
  • One credit in a CLAS course at the 300-level
  • Research paper: CLAS 390 (0 credit)

Notes about these majors:

  • Because GRK/LAT 101 and 102 do not count toward the major, these majors may require 12 credits depending on prior preparation.
  • With permission of the Chair, courses in related studies outside the department may be substituted for requirements designated CLAS at a similar level. These include both courses that involve substantial engagement with premodern cultures, such as ART 105, and courses that build skills relevant to the discipline, such as MODL 260E. We encourage our students to explore the course offerings of programs such as AFST, ART, ASIA, HIST, and RELS.

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.
