Modified Major in Classical Archaeology


Prerequisite: CLST 6, to provide an overview of the chronology and geography of the Classical world and to introduce students to the methodologies of archaeology.

Three courses in Classical archaeology selected from CLST 12, 20-26, 30. Students are encouraged to study the archaeology of both Greece and Rome. CLST 12 is a topics course that can be taken more than once when different subjects are offered.

One course in ancient history, selected from CLST 11, 14, 15, 17, 18, 19. This course helps establish a general knowledge of ancient Greek and Roman history and introduces students to historical methodologies.

One course in ancient Greek or Latin numbered 10 or higher (excluding Greek 11).

Completion of Culminating Experience requirement.

Participation in either of the Department's two Foreign Study Programs will meet the requirements for two of the above courses, one in ancient history and one in Classical archaeology. No more than two courses from any single Classics Foreign Study Program may count towards the modified major. (Three courses can be counted from participation in both the Greece and Rome FSP programs.)

A modified major in Classical Archaeology consists of the courses listed above AND five additional courses taken in one or more other departments or programs. All modified majors must be planned as a coherent whole. Students must submit a written statement to the Classics Department explaining their rationale for the courses selected for the modified major, and that statement must be approved by the Department.
