Minors

Classical Studies offers four minors: Greek, Latin, Classical Civilization and Classical Archaeology. No courses used to fulfill the requirements of one minor may be used for another, or for the majors in Classical Languages or Classical Studies.

Greek Requirements: 5 courses

  • Five courses in ancient Greek, at least three at or above the 300-level

Latin Requirements: 5 courses

  • Five courses in Latin, at least three at or above the 300-level

Note: Latin 25 does not count toward the minor

Classical Civilizations Requirements: 5 courses

  • Five Classical Studies (CLST) courses at least three at or above the 200-level in at least two areas:

    • literature (in translation at or above the 200 level and/or in the original language at or above the 300-level)
    • history,
    • art and archaeology, or
    • philosophy. 

Note: You should consult with the DUS as to a given course's fit in the distribution while planning coursework for the minor. Classical Studies courses include crosslisted courses originating in other departments and study-abroad transfers. Greek and Latin courses below the 300-level do not count toward the Classical Civilization minor.

Classical Archaeology Requirements: 5 Courses

  • Five Classical Studies (CLST) courses in ancient art and archaeology, at least three at or above the 200-level, and at least three of these originating in the Department of Classical Studies.

Note: Classical Studies courses include crosslisted courses originating in other departments and study-abroad transfers. The thrust of a particular course (e.g. religion, women in antiquity) may be more or less archaeological depending on the instructor, so you should plan your minor in consultation with the DUS.
