Classical Civilization Major

To complete the classical civilization major, students should complete ten courses with the Classics (CLAS), Greek (GREK), or Latin (LATN) subject codes, or having the CLAS attribute. Of these:

  • At least three classes must be departmentally based: courses with the subject codes for Classics (CLAS), Greek (GREK), or Latin (LATN). HIST 1210 and HIST 1220 count as departmental courses for this requirement.
  • At least two classes must be at or above the 2000 level, with at least one of those two being an EP3 or EP4 course with the Classics (CLAS), Greek (GREK), or Latin (LATN) subject codes.
  • A maximum of six classes in Greek (GREK) or Latin (LATN) may count toward the major. Two Latin/Greek courses at the 1000 level may count only if both 1000-level courses are in the same language (Latin or Greek).

While no courses in Latin or Greek are required for the classical civilization major, the department encourages classical civilization majors to fulfill their College language requirement in Latin or Greek.
