Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments, Programs, and Requirements for Majors and Minors

This program is recommended for those students who have interest in the general culture of the ancient world and do not necessarily desire a high level of proficiency in Latin or Greek, or for those who simply wish to broaden their education. This concentration is not recommended for students who wish to go to graduate school in Classics or Archaeology.

I. Required courses in the major—36 hours, including:

8 hours from Greek and/or Latin language courses at the 200-400 level

Senior Capstone

II. Required courses outside major—None

III. Other departmental requirements:

Major competency will be demonstrated by a final examination consisting of one hour of written translation in Latin or Greek, one hour on a prepared essay topic, two hours on unprepared essay topics, a one-hour oral examination on literature, history and culture based on student readings over the course of study. Formal presentation of research conducted in CLAS 498 will be part of the demonstration of competency.
