Notes:
The proposed changes are intended to update the requirements to reflect: ( 1) the addition of special topics courses in literature/philosophy/religion (CLST 10), ancient history (CLST 11), and Classical archaeology (CLST 12), and (2) changes in the numbering and content of Comparative Literature courses. The current description does not clearly signal the status of Greek 30 and Latin 22, 24, 26, 30 as topics courses that can be taken more than once.

Beginning with the Class of 2019

    Any six courses in Greek and/or Latin numbered 10 or higher (excluding Greek 11 ). These courses enhance students' knowledge of the corpus of ancient Greek and Latin texts, familiarize them with advanced methodologies of literary analysis, and build their research skills. Greek 30, and Latin 22, 24, 26, 30 are topics courses that can be taken more than once when different subjects are offered.

    Two courses distributed as follows:

    • One course selected from Classical Studies 2-5, 10. This course helps establish a general knowledge of languages, literature, and systems of thought in ancient Greece and Rome and introduces students to the methodologies used in studying that subject matter.
    • One course selected from Classical Studies 6, 11, 12, 14-26. This course helps establish a general knowledge of ancient Greek and Roman history and material culture and introduces students to historical and archaeological methodologies.
