Minor in Classical Languages and Literature

Prior to the Class of 2018

  • Any four courses in Greek and/or Latin numbered 10 or higher (excluding Greek 11).
  • One course selected from Classical Studies 2-5, 29-31. Any course in Greek or Latin numbered 10 or higher (excluding Greek 11) , Philosophy 11.
  • One course in ancient history or archaeology selected from Classical Studies 14-26.

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 proposed changes also make it possible to take CLST 6 (Introduction to Classical Archaeology) to fulfill the required course in ancient history or archaeology. 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 four 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.

  • One course selected from Classical Studies 2-5, 10; any course in Greek or Latin numbered 10 or higher (excluding Greek 11); Philosophy 11.
