Culminating Experience

Culminating Experience

Requirements

Students majoring in the Department of Classics may fulfill their Culminating Experience requirement in one of four ways:

  • Complete an Honors Project (requires prior approval from the Classics Department)
  • Complete both Foreign Study Programs (Greece and Rome)
  • Complete a relevant internship (for example, at the Hood Museum) during their junior or senior year AND enroll in an independent study class approved by the Classics Department that includes but is not limited to the work undertaken as part of the internship
  • Complete during their junior or senior year an additional course from among the offerings designated by the Department of Classics as appropriate for Culminating Experiences. (See below for a list of eligible courses.) If the course designated as a Culminating Experience does not normally require a substantial paper (c. 20-25 pages in length) or an equivalent project, the student will make arrangements with the faculty member teaching the course to produce such a paper or project as an addition to the standard requirements for the course. Such arrangements should be made no later than the end of the first week of the semester in which the Culminating Experience course is taken. If the course designated as a Culminating Experience normally requires a shorter paper or smaller project, the larger paper or project required to fulfill the Culminating Experience may, at the discretion of the instructor, replace that shorter paper or smaller project.
