New Classical Studies Major
The new Classical Studies Major is open to students starting with those in the graduating class of 2021 (current juniors).
Because Classical Studies is multidisciplinary, the major includes a number of courses cross listed with History, Anthropology, WGS, Art History, and Philosophy in addition to Latin and Greek language courses and Latin and Greek Literature and culture courses.
The NEW major allows students to complete the Classical Studies major with or without Latin or Greek study. Students who learn Latin or ancient Greek can include in the major Latin 102 and Greek 102 and any Latin (LAT) or Greek (GRK) literature courses focused on reading Classical authors in their original languages, or add a Latin or Greek minor to their program (with approval from the department). Students who choose language study other than Latin or Greek can also major in Classical Studies.
I. 9 CLA, Latin, or Greek courses:
- Any CLA 100-level courses and ANTH 106: students may count up to 2;
- Latin 102 and Greek 102: students may count both (not required);
- CLA, Latin, or Greek courses at the 200 or 300 level and above: at least 1 must be at the 300-level.
