Classical Studies Minor

The minor requires 20 credits. Because this minor is interdivisional, students may complete any major to satisfy the college requirement that the major and minor be in different divisions.

Requirements:

Latin Language Requirement (Eight Credits):

Take at least eight credits of Latin language courses, which must be independent of any Latin courses used to satisfy any other requirements (i.e., no "double-counting" of Latin courses). Descriptions of Latin courses may be found in the "Latin" section of this Bulletin.

Classical History Requirement (Four Credits):

Take one of the following:

HIST 101 - The Greek World, 1184-323 BCE
HIST 103 - The Roman World, 753 BCE-180 CE

Elective (Four Credits):

Take one of the following elective courses to bring the total credits for the minor to at least 20:

ART 110 - Survey of Art History I
ART 213 - Art of Ancient Greece and Rome
HIST 101 - The Greek World, 1184-323 BCE
HIST 103 - The Roman World, 753 BCE-180 CE
LATIN 215 - Intermediate Latin
LITRN 270 - Greek Mythology
(see the "Literature in Translation" section of the "Modern and Classical Languages" section).

RELST 117 - Religion in the Ancient Greco-Roman World

Note:

Students who take both HIST 101 and HIST 103 may count one of them toward the elective requirement. Other appropriate courses may be included in the minor with the permission of the minor coordinator. Students are strongly encouraged to discuss any potential course substitutions prior to enrolling in the course.
