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 of these must be taught by a primary or secondary member of the Department of Classical Studies, and at least three courses must be at or above the 250-level.

Latin Requirements: 5 courses

  • Five courses in Latin. At least three of these must be taught by a primary or secondary member of the Department of Classical Studies, and at least three courses must be at or above the 250-level.

Classical Civilization Requirements: 5 courses

  • Five CLST courses. At least three of these must be taught by a primary or secondary member of the Department of Classical Studies; at least three courses must be at or above the 200-level in at least two areas:
    • Literature
    • History
    • Art and archaeology
    • 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 cross-listed courses originating in other departments and study-abroad transfers. Greek and Latin courses below the 250-level do not count toward the Classical Civilizations minor.

Classical Archaeology Requirements: 5 Courses

  • Five CLST courses in ancient art and archaeology. At least three of these must be taught by a primary or secondary member of the Department of Classical Studies, and at least three courses must be at or above the 200-level.

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.
