Majors and Minors

The Classics department offers four majors and minors: Ancient History, Classical Archaeology, Classical Languages and Literatures, and Classical Studies. All major students need to complete the Culminating Experience Requirement.

Getting started with your major or minor

  • A student contemplating a major or minor should arrange a meeting with a regular faculty member whose teaching and research are focused in the relevant major/minor track, or may choose to meet with the department’s designated undergraduate advisor(s) or the Chair.
  • The faculty member and student should confer and fill out the major/minor worksheet, and the student should enter the proposed enrollment plan in DartWorks on the Registrar's website.
  • The student should then make an appointment with the Chair who will confirm the planned major/minor with the student and approve it in DartWorks.
  • Any subsequent changes to the major/minor plan must be approved by the major advisor and the Chair.
