The classical studies minor is an interdisciplinary program in the Thomas Harriot College of Arts and Sciences. The minimum requirement is 24 s.h., which includes required courses in history and either Latin or Greek. The program, with electives in archaeology, art, classical studies, English, foreign languages, history, philosophy, and religious studies, is designed to encourage students to study all aspects of the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome. A maximum of 6 s.h. from each of the following may count toward the classical studies minor: courses used to satisfy the foundations curriculum requirements; LATN or GRK courses used to satisfy the foreign language requirement for the BA degree; directed readings in LATN or GRK; and study abroad programs approved by the director. Additional courses beyond those listed may be approved by the director if they significantly advance the student’s understanding of classics. No semester hours counted toward the student’s major may count toward the classical studies minor. In many cases, prerequisites for courses listed below will be waived by the constituent departments.
