The department offers five concentrations: Greek, Latin, Greek and Latin, Classical Studies, and Latin with Teacher Licensure. All programs draw on a common core of material, but their emphases are different, and all aim to give the student as complete a background in Greco-Roman culture as possible. Strong emphasis is placed both on acquiring the linguistic skills necessary to be able to read the ancient texts in their original languages and on gaining an understanding of the cultures in which Western culture is firmly rooted. A Classics degree is an excellent general intellectual training, and does not limit the student to any one future career.
Declaration of Major in Classics
Declaring a major in Classics requires the student to complete a Declaration of Major form that must be signed by the department chair. Before declaring a major, students must satisfy the LANG 120 requirement.
Minor in Classics
A student may minor in Classics with an emphasis in Greek, Latin or Classical Studies.
